    Customizing a sound theme? Wow! That's a novel Windows9x concept (and one that was also implemented in pre-pulseaudio Gnome before their "War On Choice/Options").

    Default No, please no!

    Sound themes was something operating systems had in the early 90s when multimedia were new to the PC.

    Now it is just annoying. You don't want your computer to make annoying beeps and boops and sounds, its just annoying.
    Hearning the same sounds everyday gets really tiresome too.
    Often you listen to music and then sounds just mess up your experience.

    So, please no sounds!
    If you insist on sounds, then make the sounds no longer than 1 second, and limit sound events to situations where nescesary.
