Block placement sounds are generated server-side, causing confusing sound delays if the user has a laggy connection

      Description

      Ever since Minecraft 1.3, block placement sounds have been controlled by the server rather than the client.

      If the user's connection to the server has relatively high latency (~100ms+), the sound lag is very noticeable. This is confusing and also inconsistent with block breaking sounds, which are controlled by the client and will therefore be lag-free.

      Please consider switching this back to the pre-1.3 behavior, allowing the client to generate block placement sounds immediately without having to wait for a server round trip.

      This issue was reported a while ago in MC-30, but was only partially fixed. There is also a client mod (of which I am the author) to provide a temporary workaround: NoSoundLag, http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1414774-nosoundlag/
