Greta, I didn't try it, but it sounds very reasonable. Cool!

A little thinking is no problem, once in a while ... ;-)  

<play> accepts currently three options (kdenserver.cc:180) start, stop, speed. 
I think speed doesn't work right now, but start and stop should work. Isn't 
that what you need for the in/out points?

For the looping, it would be trivial to add another option:
 <play loop="1">  


P.S.:  In principle, you should get a list of all commands with default 
options with "piave -h", but this seg.faults in 0.2.2 .... :-(
