All this aside, I was a bit surprised on reading the commit message to see
the current MIDI code axed before adding the new code, if the new code is
expected to be seen soon.  Usually the argument for "axe now" in the
presence of "new version coming soon" is "the current version is hurting
people and should be put out of its misery".  I wouldn't preclude that
being the case, but I don't remember it causine that much misery...
