If you set the sound to Stream then the wave form in the timeline will show
you where the sound ends. Then just add 2 seconds of empty frames before
starting the next sound. Disadvantages of "Stream" are 1) it gets stored
once for every occurrence, so if it plays more than once, the .swf size
goes up proportionately; 2) It forces animation to keep up, even at the
cost of dropping animation frames.
