 Uhm, what is the advantage over beep, beside that it can read from
stdin instead of using commandline options?  Why is a kernel patch
needed, the beep package can do it without a patch?

 IIRC there was another package also with a similar approach but I can't
remember its name.  Btw., is beep2 based on Johnathan Nightingale's beep
or is it something different?  If the later I would call the name
misleading.....

 So long!
