Ok, thanks for the hint (no pun intended :) ).
I see that the pcm_list() function has changed in aplay. The new hints
API looks good.
However, I note that snd_device_name_hint() does not return hw, plughw,
plug, dmix, etc. Are these obtained elsewhere? I would like to build a
complete list of all available devices in order to allow the user to
select them from a dropdown list in a GUI.
