	The man page for audioplay mentions -f can be used to play
	sounds but doesn't mention how to properly use it.
	A list of the possible encodings for -e is necessary:
	(linear, ulaw, etc)
	Also, I think a good example to add to the man page would be
	how to play raw audio files taken from a CD (for example those
	created by cdd):

		audioplay -f -c 2 -P 16 -s 44100 -e slinear_le

	(Naturally this won't work until the bugs in -f and -P I
	mentioned in my earlier pr are fixed).
