Hi michael

this pharoseound settings is a mess.
I probably contributed also because Beep beep was not working.
I should take some time to really have a look. So far I a bit busy.
we got some concurrent updates. The configurationOfSound if it exist should tell us which version to load.
Or configurationOfPharo.

In the future we will clean all that. Sorry for the problem.
