How about adding a commandline option to wine's winecfg?
   winecfg /audio /list
?  That way even if Wine changes, you'll get the right answer still.

That's a very good question.  In Windows, you can do this with
  sndrec32 /play /close "filename.wav"
Looks like sndrec32 allows either - or / as the option separator:
Wine doesn't have an app like this yet, but it ought to.
It'd be easy to write a first cut.
