Taunting plugin?

This would be a simple plugin, so I'm wondering if it already exists (or something better).

A "taunting" plugin would detect specific in-game events or sequences, send out a little message to everyone and play custom sounds (discovered at load time in certain directories) (allowing people to distribute "sound packs" of .wavs). One example might have "from down-town!" from nba-jam for a long range kill, or various UT2004 announcer sounds perhaps for kill streaks, "nemesis" detection ala TF2... etc).

The downside would be all users on a server would have to have a sound pack installed as (at least in 2.4, not sure about other branches) there is no way to have the client download the sounds at map load time...

Plugin triggered sounds (custom or stock) have never worked right, unfortunately. It seemed to crash clients.

As for the messages, there is already a server plugin for that that we include with the game. The playHistoryTracker plugin will send out messages like "soandso is on a Rampage!".
