Btw. there's absolutely no need to have this in libgnome anymore.
gnome-triggers won't work anymore anyways since everything which was
using it (GnomeDialog and GnomeMessageBox) is gone - so to make this
right, this'd need to be done in GTK+ anyways.

On the other hand, there's no problem with just using CSL in whatever
application wants to use sound - and CSL was already designed as a
sound-backend independent wrapper library - so I don't see a reason to
write a wrapper around a wrapper.
