 This option IS NOT mentioned in the man page. I think it should. I
assumed that there might be an -aid option since there is an -sid option
and so I tried with -aid and no sound was the result. (I have posted more
info on this)

 Man page says that this is an experimental feauture. It doesn't work for
me and I send you a bug report. Don't you like bug reports? I'm just
trying to help you (actually myself).

 Why don't you put RTFM in the lines that the mailing list software
appends at the end of each message? Seems that RTFM is a constant answer
and as such there is no point in giving it.
