There was a reason indeed. Not even nearly as compelling though as the
fact (which I noticed only yesterday) that POV-Ray for Windows isn't
designed to allow for choosing one of those standard Windows sounds
instead. So either we'll have to change the POV-Ray GUI accordingly, or
bring back the sound files.

Given that I'm not fond of putting any more effort into that old GUI, I
guess the choice is a no-brainer...


(We also ditched the background tiles for the message pane, but I don't
really expect anyone to miss /those/.)
