I hope I didn't tread too heavily on your coding conventions.  They are
not quite what I am used to.

As far as I can tell, aplay hard-wires itself for "plug:0,0".  At least,
it does in the 0.99.3 distribution of alsa-utils.

It was suggested on the alsa-devel mailing list that the correct behavior
would be to parse the information out of ~/.asoundrc or /etc/asound.conf.
I don't know if the alsa library provides functions for doing that.
