[Xerte] Desktop - bypassing a sound based on variable

Julian, I know we went down this road once before, and can't remember the outcome.
In AW it was fairly common to use a Decision icon to say, enable/disable the playing of sound in a piece.
You hung the sound off the dec icon, then used a calculated path, 0 or 1.That worked because AW is one based, so the first path was 1.If you set 0, it bypassed the dec icon and continued down the flow line.
So, what can I do with Xerte's 0 based dec icon?-1 does nothing, flow just stops at the dec icon.
As a bit of a kludge, I found setting the repeat property to zero does what I want, but I can't get that property to accept a variable.If I try to use a variable it just repeats endlessly.
Missing something or some other way to skin this cat?
