Oh, ok.  I got the impression that we were discussing a separate 
package.  You mentioned in an earlier post (which was quoted until this 
very last one) the following URL:

Is that asterisk-sounds package now part of asterisk?

packages wanting to most efectively integrate with the core asterisk 
package (and why package asterisk packages if not wanting integration?).
