One more follow-up question concerning sound: Is the SoundCodecPlugin
important for you on 64-bit Linux? This is used Klatt (Speaker default
say: 'hello'). The plugin is separate from SoundPlugin, and it has not
been updated for 64-bit systems. For example, if you evaluate
"Speaker manWithEditor" and then put the editor in the trash, the VM
will crash on a 64-bit platform. Is this important for EToys?
