Well, there is the beep option which one can turn on, if feedback is
desired. Stopping playback would just introduce few seconds of unnecessary
silence. Then skipping multiple tracks would not sound very comfortable.

Perhaps the beep should be relative to current volume (if it already isn't).
So beep_volume would be beep_volume_factor * current_volume_factor. Perhaps a
new option (quiet) could be added to the beep volume setting; IMHO strong is
already strong enough for everybody.
