Fortunately, it's not a requirement for DDs to know all Debian
packages. I already mentioned, that I tried six players:
alsaplayer, beep, mp3blaster, quodlibet, rhythmbox, zinf.

Does VLC fulfill the requirements I mentioned? E.g. how about
the first one?

I tried VLC but cannot find the speed/pitch control.
Thanks to Sven Arvidsson! I found the plugins SndStretch for
xmms and Scizzor for both xmms and beep. Both are not packaged.
They are easily compiled and at least SndStretch works fine.
There is also a crossfade plugin for xmms in Debian. The
drawback here is, that I'm not compatible with the UI of XMMS.
It looks like a burlesque of a car radio, not like a normal
program as e.g. rhythmbox.
