Yeah, we would just need to make sure that it's called one way or the
other everywhere. I really don't mind either way. Let me know what your
executive decision would be for the resulting strings.

They do. The screenshot in my blog post is more recent:
Both of the "sub" toggles at the top allow users to disable certain
parts of the theme altogether. As in, it disables all the input feedback
buttons, and the audible bell. If they are enabled, then they are
customisable above and beyond a simple toggle.

Getting the code in was the most important part, and I kind of did my
own usability study here ;) (to be honest, others involved in the
discussions wanted to rid of the sound customisation altogether, which
would have pissed off a few people).
