Hi, Karl and Pierre-André,
Thank you both for this work!
We now have three different bodies of code afoot that address sound
issues -- the recent code from the two of you, and also some not-yet-
published code of our own concerning sound-library management.
Within the next two weeks, we'll scrutinize all this code, integrate
as appropriate, and put the result out as an etoys2.2 update.
Meanwhile, further tweaks and further discussions remain most
welcome. Thanks again to all!
