- From the perspective of this applications developer, aRts never was 
sufficiently maintained since the KDE 2 days.

Of course, it never helped that most KDE developers were quick to criticize 
and slow to help, but that's the way it turned out.

If it weren't for binary compatibility requirements, I'd say aRts should 
have been ditched a while back.
