fwiw, after working on kde's panels for a few years now, i've found no
reliable correlation between "working sound" and a sound applet running.
perhaps it's different in gnome =)

isn't this a separate topic altogether from notifications, though, which
should be discussed separately and with the multimedia developers of all the
projects? (they tend to have great cross-pollination, so this shouldn't be
hard) they could then bring a recommendation (e.g. a standardized DBUS
interface to be provided by the running desktop's workspace) to this list
which would likely have good coverage of the issues they are most acquainted

or it could use the sound system provided by the platform it is written to,
and that sound system could provide a standardized DBUS interface for
play_sound. so i don't see a particular advantage to defining this detail
within the scope of "notification systems"
