I talked to Artemio on IRC and will commit the "East West" sounds pending:

*) An audit of our currently used sounds and a replacement of those that are 
currently in use and a note of those that aren't so that they can be removed 
in KDE 4.

*) Sounds in .wav format and dithered to a lower resolution (22 kHz, 16-bit 
mono like the current ones).  We need .wav since aRts by itself -- without 
mpeglib from kdemultimedia -- can't do a reasonably job decoding vorbis 
audio.  We need lower resolution because otherwise the files are larger than 
the rest of kdebase.  ;-)

*) An appropriate license notice covering all of the files.

yourself, "Dijkstra would not have liked this", well that would be enough
