Ear Candy looks like a fabulous usability feature that I would love to
see on Fedora as a default (F12 maybe?).

This simple utility sits in your traybar, watches on the windows on
your desktop and manages the sounds for you. Let’s say for example
you’re listening some music. Then suddenly a skype call comes. Ear
Candy will lower the music automatically for you until the skype call
is ended. Same (with fries) for movies and whatever else you want.

Ear candy features a nice configuration panel which lets you configure
settings for each application. Since the preset apps are very few, you
may want to add new ones. In order to do that, open that app, make it
produce some sound, then click the “+” button and select it from the
list you see.
