Yes and no.  The problem is that the audio module is calling some outside
audio player, and that program has to start each time & play the file.  As
a result, things sound the way you say.

One possibility which has occurred to me, but which I have not looked at,
is using a more sophisticated player program.  (What this would do, I
can't actually imagine, but anyway.)  I think the real need is to set some
sort of priority, so that if events are within _n_ microseconds of each
other, the second (third, whatever) does not play.  But I've no idea how
to hack such a test into the module.
