"Just installed arts and its libs, as well as the newer QT it depends on"
Let me guess, the newer QT will mess up current KDE compiled against an older 
version (like almost everytime that QT got updated)? arts-1.3.0 in testing is 
not a good idea if it pulls in a new QT, especially since the change is from 
qt-3.2.3 to qt-3.3.3.

And new KDE-3.3 will work fine with old arts? What exactly change between 
arts-1.2.3 and arts-1.3.0?

And this why exactly? 1 or 2 years old programs that got a new version just 
lately usually means that they worked fine for a pretty long time. GTK1 is 
surely older but does not make a program useless.
