Ok, so please someone make an abstraction that does this so that users 
don't have to think that they might be doing this.

I might suggest calling it [soundfiler] but the name is already taken and 
not overridable -- except by deleting code.

I might suggest not calling it [soundfiler] because of this and because 
"filer" doesn't mean the same in [soundfiler] and in English. (who knows, 
maybe it's in UCSD's house style?)

So, everyone, what should [soundfiler] be renamed to?
