[Etoys] Sound tool refactoring and enhancement

I think I'm thinking about something like a holder for sounds (audio 
files) where each sound could also have a costume (what it looks like) 
and a flexshell (possible transformations that have been applied to the 
audio file). So tile scripting would then be able to do quite a bit in 
the way of multimedia presentation with sound and morphic objects.

Perhaps the piano roll mechanism (and the metaphor of the piano) is 
outdated (or should be one option among several others ....).

Perhaps the entire mechanism could link to OLPC Csound (through OSC?)

.... Hope this is all helpful as ideas ....
