Shriram asked for sound-file support.  Maybe we could hook up the  
sound of a turkey gobbling, and add a turkey to a crowd of turkeys  
gobbling every time `fib' was called not in tail position.  Sound can  
leave an impression, like the sound of the Nazgûl in Lord of the  
Rings, or the Dementers in Harry Potter.
