I think the plan is for the FUSA to replace the Pidgin tray icon and the
logout button, but I don't know for sure.  Right now it's in transition.
Might also be so that the battery icon's suspend/hibernate functionality
can be removed (so unprivileged users can't suspend the system from it).
Again, just speculating.  The only thing that really bugs me about it is
that power-related options aren't shown (only logout/switch user) when
you hit the power button and it's set on "ask me," but there are bugs
about that filed already.

Which is default now?  New Wave?  That seems to be an extremely popular
one among testers.

I like that they're short & sweet.  The drums one took too long to
finish playing.  Dapper's login sound is still my favourite though
