The --seek number is in bytes, so it assumes that the caller knows what
the internal structure of the file is.  For my usage (which is a simple
visual wave form editor), this makes sense, but specifying it in
milliseconds would probably be even more useful, I guess?

I'm not that familiar with the aplay internals, but so if someone who
are familiar were to transform the patch into "seek to millisecond X",
that would be nice.
