I'd say let's forget maintaining arts and go for a simple inhouse solution, 
while supporting advanced "3rd party" solutions. This should be easier 
because we don't develop the sophisticated sound daemons, we only use them.
I'd say this requires less man power.

Or let's better say "we are looking for a new maintainer for arts" and keep on 
using the frozen arts branch as one possible backend.
