Nowadays computers have complex sequence of boot screens -- BIOS, graphics
cards, Ethernet boot, etc.

When you pay attention and you have monitor attached of course it is easy
(relatively) to notice when finally you have grub boot screen loaded. But
without monitor (in case of servers) is not that easy -- you have to count
beeps, or time, to estimate, the computer is now at "grub stage".

So, it would be useful to have something which can distinguish grub from any
other low-level bios-alike screen --> a sound. Simple "ta da" would make a
difference.

So the wish is, user could pick up file to play at start (of grub start
screen).
