Some notes (but just my opinions):
We barely have aRts being maintained at this point, don't you think all of
this discussion is a little lofty?
That said, I think we should support multiple architectures. KDE is all about
choice, and we should be able to choose what works best for us as
individuals. Personally, I need aRts support for klicker (without having to
rewrite all of the tone generation code) - it makes use of the synth
capabilities of aRts (and they are perfect for what I need). But gestreamer
and (insert architecture here) would be nice too.
I have some ideas, but I hesitate to put them out here just yet. We have much
more pressing problems to solve - like triaging aRts. I'll try to do some
work on that as soon as I can get caught up a bit with paying work (probably
this weekend). That'll also give me some experience with some of the more
esoteric features of C++, which I could sorely use...
