as some of you might know that Phonon is not really good for games because of
the high latency and some other issues.
Granatier used therefore for some time OpenAL and SndFile, first with
GluonAudio then with a copy of TagaroAudio, as optional dependency.
A few days ago, Ian Wadham ported KGoldrunner to TagaroAudio (a direct copy
from Granatier) and also want to declare OpenAL and SndFile as hard
dependency. He will soon contact you regarding this.
For Granatier and KGoldrunner there is a difference like day and night
regarding to the sound quality and because now not only one but two games use
it, we think a hard dependency is justified. Also, Tagaro is supposed to be
the successor of libkdegames, so there eventually will be more games using it.
