Among the many bell options we already support, it would be nice to support the built-in PC speaker. Unfortunately this seems to be non-trivial: on Win95-series systems this can apparently be done using MessageBeep(0xFFFFFFFF), but on NT-series systems this doesn't do anything different from MessageBeep(MB_OK). Meanwhile on NT, Beep(Freq, Duration) uses the PC speaker, but that plays the default sound on Win95. So we'd need to auto-detect which kind of system we were running on. Implemented in 2003-05-25, using a grotty Windows-version-detection hack. Tested on at least Win2K.
Audit trail for this wish.
