Phonon, xine and short oggs

as many of you have probably noticed already, short ogg files are not played 
correctly through phonon-xine. I have started to fix the problem in xinelib, 
but we probably won't have a fixed xine ready with the 4.0 release (I fixed 
most of it but there's still a race condition in xinelib that I can't nail).

So what should we do about all the short sounds? Distribute them as .wav 
files? .mp3 is probably out of the question... Or should we append some 
silence to the end for the ogg files? This would break for apps where the 
length of the sound is important, though.
