Description

Currently sound selection is manual. After the System Sounds Contest, to be able to package and offer different sound theme selections, we need a basic UI.

Basically it would be a dropdown to select different themes, and the backend to store the themes. A "Custom" option will be needed in order to let the user select whatever sound they like, taking the last used sound theme as base to change from.

An option to save and name these custom profiles would be neat as well.

I do not know how the current settings are stored at the moment, but a "Haiku" way to do it would be making the themes "folders" with the sound files in it (maybe a config file to associate them with the entries). User can just delete these folders to delete the theme.
