Probably due to the fact that the current GNOME sound API is weird, and
that turning sound events on means that the desktop continually clicks,
beeps and and bongs at you.  I created a 0.1s silent sample which I've
assigned to the GTK+ events to shut them up, just so that I can have a
kick-arse login disco riff.

I'm planning on adding a sound event for Sound Juicer so that when a CD
is finished it can play a sound.  I wanted to do this The GNOME Way but
I don't want to turn on the sound prefs...

I think that the desktop-wide sound prefs should only contain widget and
other common sounds (a working "click" sound which only plays when the
user actually presses the button, dialog alert, question, information,
etc) and **allows the user to select None**.  Then a sane API in
libgnome or some other utility library to play arbitrary sounds.  The
application-specific sound prefs can then go where they belong, in the

I think.
