I missed this in my earlier reply.  Is there any reason we couldn't move the
sound command text box and label to be beside the sound method drop-down?  By
doing this we could lose the "Sound command" part of the label text and retain
just the part in parentheses.  Of course, I would still expect the label and
text box to be desensitized when the sound method is anything other than
"Command".  I realize this violates the single-column ideal, but it would make
sense in this specific case and falls in line with the ports suggestion for the
network tab.
