Hi guys,

I recently discovered that there's a more or less complete usage of 
acoustic beeps in Libo. This is done by System::Beep(). I did a grok for 
"Beep" and got 59 results all over the code. I don't think that is much. 
Is this a left over from former times?! Moreover I think most people 
have beeps disabled on their systems.

What do you think, is it save to remove it?! Or would you think this 
would be a gain in usability?
