I was never particularly enamoured with PLAY_RATE_ARG as an

the thing to do is to add a new gopt --play-rate-arg (which
would apply whenever outputting to an audio device and a
rate change is needed) which could of course be included
within a SOX_OPTS.  I suggest removing PLAY_RATE_ARG when
introducing --play-rate-arg.

Sounds good to me.
So unless there are any objections, I'll go ahead with this,
and it remains to be seen whether or not soxrc/sox.conf will
be needed as well.

I guess it depends on either or not there are suitable use cases for it.
From the top of my head, i do remember a user that mentioned that he really does 2 distinct kind of processing, always with the same options. But he could very well set SOX_OPTS accordingly before his runs.
i.e. a little shell script would do the trick for him.
