Of course, it would be _much_ more bandwidth efficient to do:

	cat file.mp3 | ssh -l user "(mpg123 -s - \
		| esdcat)"

or something.  (I don't use mpg123 or esdcat, so I'm not sure of the exact
syntax of either.)

Over an unloaded local network, it probably doesn't matter, but over a WAN
link it might be very important.
