I consider it "truly important". When using X11 and the sound server
over a network you don't like the extra latency you experience
everytime a bell event is generated by your terminal.

I like the idea of using GStreamer as a comprehensive abstraction
layer for caching event sounds. This would allow me to use Polypaudio
as underlying sound server even in case Polypaudio is not adopted
by Gnome. And this would make it easier for the KDE people to agree to
a common solution with Gnome.
