This sounds like a great idea. I'd like to see the ability to install whole
sound themes, and be able to use 1 or more sounds from other sound themes. (Mix
and match) Should sound themes be installable in the user's home directory? I'm
not sure of the issues with this. I also think that the files of sound themes
should be named ThemeName_event.wav or some other naming convention.

I read a article on linuxtoday the other week about multimedia in KDE, they are
using something called arts, that is not dependant on QT and meant to be used
by GNOME and KDE. But it said that GNOME wasn't interested in it. What's the
difference between arts and esd? And what are the future plans of esd?
