Given that the two most popular 'KDE supporter' Linux distributions 
(SUSE and Mandrake) also install ALSA by default, maybe dmix rather 
than artsd support is what we should be lobbying the KDE developers 
for.

As pointed out already, artsd is no use with non-KDE applications, of 
which at least one is likely to be running on a KDE desktop at any 
one time.

Cheers
