why should KDE use MAS?

considering a new alternative multimedia framework (not sound server) for
KDE, only one use C++ while all the others use C: it's  >NMM
(http://www.networkmultimedia.org/): <http://www.networkmultimedia.org/):> 

I believe using C++ is a major feature for adoption by KDE programmers and
integration in KDE, as well. 

Here, I don't speak of codecs which are all developped by third party using

     In fact, NMM is kind of Gstreamer written in C++ (but less mature since
it's newer).

	The KDE project (http://www.kde.org/) appears to be considering
	alternative solutions to the native aRts sound framework for its
	video/multimedia needs, and MAS has come up in the discussion.

	Would you care to make the case for why KDE should adopt MAS and how
	it should go about doing that?  How well do you think MAS will fit
	into the KDE philosophy and general framework?  What rate of
	can we expect regarding codecs and video support?  Other leading
	contenders appear to be gstreamer, jack, xine, csl,
