We KDE SIG folks will be taking care of this. The options are using either the 
PA ALSA plugin or PA's ESD emulation (aRts can output to ESD), though last I 
checked aRts's full duplex mode didn't work with PA's ESD emulation. I haven't 
tried the ALSA plugin yet. We'll see what works best.

KDE 4 uses Phonon which uses xine-lib which supports PA natively.
