 I have a situation where I run pidgin locally and have a remote control
 session to another computer in full screen.  It would be nice to designate
 "message received" to play only when not in focus.  That way, "message
 received begins conversation" would play when someone starts a
 conversation that I cannot see.  If I brought the conversation into focus,
 I would not hear "message received" events as they would only play when
 not in focus.  If I happen to be out of the room when the conversation
 starts and miss the initial sound ''and'' if the other person continues to
 ping me with messages, the "message received" event would continue to play
 a sound until I brought the conversation into focus.  So maybe the
 modification would be two additional columns in the Sound Events area
 where you could check "In Focus" and/or "Not in focus" for each event -
 just a suggestion.  Thank you! -Andrew
