Well, I perceive the attitude at Digium is, that they'd 
rather not blow $$$ or time on stuff that is not generally 
useful to Asterisk users. There are more important, more 
generally useful things that can be done. 

It isn't really a vote on spending money, it's a vote to test the water
and see how many users would like to see the stuff in Asterisk. If
didn't have any budget, it wouldn't spend the bucks, maybe even if a 
thousand votes came in. (but if **that** many people were voting, 
somebody would surely cough up some bucks and make it happen ;)

It would be the exact same issue if I'd gone out and created a Paypal
acct of my own, and threw some of my money into it, and maybe got lucky
and had some other folks throw in a few bucks, too, for new sounds in
Asterisk, and I wanted to see which suggestions/requests for sounds took
highest priority...

But your vote could make a difference! That makes it 4; and we would
probably proceed if 5 or more came in... in this case, at least.
