It concerns me that we're removing sound support wholesale from GNOME 2,
as it is a noticeable step back in the platform. Judging from bug
reports and comments from our users, they do care about about sound.
Just yesterday, in fact, a user submitted a patch against Evolution
which allows a sound to be played when they receive new mail.

While moving sound out of libgnome makes sense, I feel it's important
that -some- sort of sound support is implemented for the GNOME 2.0
release in particular and the platform in general. I would contribute to
this, but I really know nothing about sound and the issues involved.

So, just to clarify: is the intention to remove sound support totally
from the initial GNOME 2.0 release and the platform and then add it at a
later point (to GNOME 2.2, perhaps)? If so, does anyone else feel this
is a problem? (Especially in light of the reverse in functionality for a
major step forward of the platform)
