Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21494
showaudio should use play as opposed to cat > /dev/audio

showaudio's fallback is to cat the raw audio file to /dev/audio, but it
would probably be better if it tried to use the play command from the sox
package first as a lot of sound cards these days are very limited in what
formats they support in hardware.
seems reasonable. Changed in 2.7-26 and later.
