I've been logged in for 4 1/2 days and the artsd that was started when I
logged in has accumulated only 112 seconds of CPU time. I've monitored
it in top and it never bumps the CPU % column above zero when it is

Over the same period of time, my GKrellm has consumed almost 414 minutes
of CPU time.

My CPU is a 3.0 GHz HT Pentium 4.

I don't know why some people have these problems with ARTS, but clearly
they are not universal.

My god, if you think this is "out of hand," you don't belong in on-line
discussions. So far it has been entirely on-topic and calm.c

That's fine. And I asked why one would want to do such a thing. I still
see no point to doing so when the native KDE sound support seems to
work quite well.

Perhaps for people with problematic hardware there is a better choice,
but it is not so for me or, I think, in general.
