There is a recording beep - but so far it's *only* for the
hwcodec targets (i.e. Archos recorders and Ondio FM). This is
actually more like a burp instead of a beep, due to the way how
it is generated.

The difficulty with producing a beep for recording is that it
has to work without disturbing recording, for 2 reasons: the
simple "first beep, then record" would (1) cause an unacceptable
delay before starting the recording for some applications and
(2) break prerecording.

This "no output while paused" behaviour should go imo. Pause is
a feature of the playback engine, not a feature of audio output
in general.
