Hehe, here we don't have to replace the UL screen with any printed

here, and if you fall inside everyone would just laugh at you for being
stupid :-)

I bet kids would love sounds in the UI. Their teachers less so, but
children come first! :-)

As long as we don't end up doing something like Tux Paint, I'd also like
a sound theme for Sugar.
