That won't happen. Other maintainers would think I'm crazy to auto-kill
other programs. That doesn't make sense.

It will be possible the day where GNOME and KDE will both adopt a good
sound daemon. Currently, the only possibility is to create a virtual
DMIX ALSA soundcard (check their doc, I never tried), and to use that
virtual soundcard as output for all programs. That will transparently
work with all applications!

You can tell to artsd to bind to the virtual ALSA soundcard.

There is an option in artsd to make it release the dsp soundcard when it
is not used.
