I completely inadvertently found a workaround - a real hack, but it works!
In any chain containing -ete:..., include -ef4:0.8,0.5. The parameters of
the -ef4 (low-pass filter) don't seem to matter, so if you use
-ef4:1.0,0.5, then you've got essentially a noop filter (all-pass filter).
I tried this trick with the -ef1:5000 and a couple of other filters to no
avail. It only works with -ef4:...! I think this is significant because
Kai's full reply to my original question noted that the author of -ete was
Stefan M. Fendt who is also the author of -ef4: according to the ecasound
I just haven't found a better sounding reverb effect that that of -ete.
I've heard good things about freeverb3, but it hasn't worked well for me.
