Honestly, I haven't tested the notifications with sound. I'd probably
try to dig up C example, verify if that works, and then see if there is
a problem with the Python bindings, or python code above.

Feel free to create an issue on the bugtracker for this.

Absolutely. I am planning to try the new work this weekend. I am not
sure how stable it is, but if it is stable enough, perhaps we can try to
package it. But I'll leave that up to Arthur, who's been spearheading
the effort together with Tony.

Sorry to disappoint, but I am (currently) completely clueless when it
comes to this. I just haven't dived into any of this at all.

I've searched around for a bit just now but couldn't find much beyond
the maemo ones: maemo-ringtones-*

I still use the default ringtone, and I don't recall trying to change it
