I doesn't. I doesn't in principle (cat foo.wav > /dev/dsp doesn't work
for me) and the code is wrong in at least one spot:

that would only copy 1K of data

I was stumped for a little while last night as well. Unfortunately
I don't have a simple working example, yet; but it looks like
pysolsoundserver.so and the PySol (Python Solitaire) sources might
be a good start. Apparently PyGame also has some sophisticated
sound handling. There doesn't seem to be a way to do it (easily)
with the standard libraries, though.
