I think you can set qjackctl to kill arts (or any progam) somehow. 
Probably by "Execute script on Startup:" via the Options Tab, but I'm 
not sure because I've never used it.

If you're running the KDE Desktop, then arts is the default sound 
server. You can shut it off by going to...
Main Menu --> Control Center --> Sound & Multimedia --> Sound System --> 
(un)check "Enable the sound system"

You can have it completly unallowable to start it by all users on the 
system by putting the following entry in /usr/share/config/kcmartsrc'...


I notice that artsd gets started by other programs anyways... like 
'Noatun' and possibly others.
