Come one. First you claim the list of defined names is too large. Then
you claim it is incomplete. Then you want only a single sound for
all. Now you want to distuingish the events. Hey, make up your mind!
You know, we define 125 sounds. It's up to you which ones you link
to the same file and which ones you don't define at all. We already
give you the power to do whatever you want.
