_Is_ there anyone who feels he or she has the hat of "responsible for system 
sounds" lodged somewhere above their neck? From my vantage over here Scott 
seems to be the most active and long-haired sound developer, but that doesn't 
make him responsible, yet.

* How about a commitment to creating new appropriate sounds when required? I 
don't know how folks feel about "aural consistency" in sounds, but I remember 
how long it took to achieve "visual consistency" with some icon sets because 
they weren't entirely complete and it took forever to create the new 
appropriate icons when required (for new apps, actions, whatnot).
