That does not seem to be the whole story, as there are e.g. multiple
"default" devices on my system,

$ aplay -L|grep ^default

I've written some crude ALSA device parser in the mean time[1] that
works for me. I would be surprised if it's going to match all cases,
though (and I'd be happy if other people trying my program wouldn't
run into issues with this). Thus I think the question remains open.
