The use for this appears highly specialized, to me.

I created a patch adding a boolean configuration option called
"bell_msg_always" that will use bell_msg for all bells including
the ones in the active window.

The use I have for this is the following:
- I have screen configured to use a bell_msg that includes the
name of the running command
- I also have it configured to use the status line of my terminal
- I have a small application that monitors the status line of my
terminal and plays different sounds depending on the string it

With all of this it becomes possible to run different
applications (e.g. mutt, irssi) in a remote screen running on my
server and play application specific sounds on my desktop when a
bell is generated in any of them.

I'm not quite sure where to find the CVS sources, so I have
a patch that works against the 4.0.2 release.
