I think the main problem with current theme (ie fd.o one) is that it is
not supposed to be used by default, since it features all sound events
as enabled, and many people dislike this. 

I guess GNOME should probably have its own theme which could be just
fd.o theme, but with a lot of events disabled by default. 

This is mostly what I did for Mandriva theme, using fd.o theme as a
basis and providing some Mandriva sounds for some events.
