I'm sorry that I chime in so late...

I think the arts module should remain in trunk. Though it should be moved on 
level down (i.e. out of /trunk/KDE/ to /trunk/). The reason is that in order 
to use aRts from KDE4 applications a few small patches to the Qt binding code 
in aRts is needed. This can not be done in the 3.5 branch since that is 
supposed to compile with Qt3/KDE3 code.

Also my kdemm-aRts backend needs the Qt4 version of the aRts libs.
