Anything that the new NSSound code supports. Since they only need to
be a couple of seconds long, we can probably distribute them as
uncompressed sounds, I'd suggest 16-bit either mono or stereo
depending on the sound (the 'whooosh' sound Apple provides makes good
use of stereo, flying from one side to the other, but others are
Apple provides theirs as 16-bit Integer (Big Endian - even on x86,
marginally interestingly), Stereo, 44.100 kHz .aiff files. The total
file size for all of the sounds is under 1MB. Someone shipping a
handheld platform where space was at a very tight premium could encode
them as something like vorbis if the sound input bundle supported this
format to save some space.

There are lots of good sources of public domain or permissively-
licensed sounds, but finding 14 that match the names is time
consuming. If you know a sound designer who'd be interested in
providing them then that would be really great.
