Well, I have to confess that I don't understand the intent
of the author of /usr/bin/play. I don't know whose error it
is. But I had to change it to be able to play files using

I'm not sure whether this is OK (for example it seems that
the effects should be preceded by -e), but at least the
simple case works.
