I object to that statement - IT WAS WORKING without major problems
here at least. (-current as of April 2004)

And, in fact, IT STILL IS WORKING with recent -current, cvsupped
on June 27. The MIDI stuff was salvaged from Attic with my tiny
modifications to catch up the recent activities like dev_t =>
struct cdev* transitions.

I'll tar-up the material and make it accessible if requested.

Post Scriptum to the people who know me as taku at cent.saitama-u.ac.jp:
	My email address has been changed since April,
