I think gstreamer looks like it's taking the lead. The gnome people seem to be 
more or less behind it, and if arts is unmaintained as looks like will be the 
case then you'll probably have to drop support eventually. Any chance of or something similar endorsing one method or other? I think 
the benefits of everyone using the same framework are probably greater than 
the benefits any particular system has over another.
