why does nobody think of continuing the development of aRts?

Recently, I decided to use aRts exclusively for all sound synthesis I wanted 
to do, so Stefan Westerfeld's news were really bad new for me.  aRts' 
extensible modular approach is really nice and aRts provides a good KDE user 
interface.  Okay, there are other solutions for modular synthesis around, but 
is there one which is probably maintained for the next years and whose UI 
integrates with KDE?

While the technology behind BEAST may be good, the screenshots on the BEAST 
website look terrible.  Look at the connection lines which cross the module 
icons!  I also don't like to disturb my KDE desktop with Gtk programs.
