Re: [MSP] MSP Implementation Plans

The MSP hasn't come up to the top of the code queue yet, so I don't have
any thing to actually show, but we WILL be sound-based on Beltane.

We will imp it like this:

It will be done copied after the 'color' command.  So you will have
SOUND OFF:  Duh...  no sound.
SOUND SPARSE:  Death sounds, fighting sounds, major sound effects only.
SOUND NORMAL:  sound effects for weather, coins, spells, etc.
SOUND COMPLETE:  Background music using MIDI files.

We might break it into a SOUND and a MUSIC command.

Then in the places we want a sound, we'll just put a macro for
PLAY("effect.wav" etc.) that will expand to the correct MSP string or to
NULL if sound is turned off.

Ask me more when it floats to the top of the queue.
