Comment (by bigon):

 Using libcanberra is pretty trivial to use actually

 Something like that seems to work:

 +       ca_context_play(ca_gtk_context_get(), 0,
 +               CA_PROP_MEDIA_FILENAME, filename, NULL);
 +       return;
 +#elif defined(USE_GSTREAMER)

 The `CA_PROP_EVENT_DESCRIPTION` property should also probably set with the
 description of the action, this is know in `pidgin_sound_event` array, the
 problem is I'm not sure how to make that available as it would require
 changing `purple_sound_play_file()` if I'm not wrong
