But in that case you are providing a default binary package that will
not work nicely on a KDE desktop. And while building qt3 and arts is
a time consuming process, it doesn't matter much to binary-only users
(the ones who benefit from having this option enabled by default).
Yes, mplayer sucks in this regard (building-everything-in-a-single-binary).
