Hello again everybody!

Here's what I think:

1. The OGGs will be 128 kbps. This will require not more than 1.5-1.7 Megs for 
all the sounds.

2. I agree, the old sounds should be available in kdeartwork-oldsystemsounds 
or something like this.

But there's one thing: if some apps have paths to old sounds hard-coded, e.g. 
not used via knotify, simple symlinks may not work - because the old sounds 
were wavs, and the new ones are OGGs... unless arts will handle this 
automatically: e.g. what if some app was using sound.wav. Now it is 
sound.ogg, but we have "ln -s sound.ogg sound.wav". Will arts be able to 
understand that it's an ogg file and play it appropriately? I mean, will it 
be safe to create symlinks from wavs to oggs?
