	I've had a surprising response, mostly of people needing
instructions on how to install.  So I've update the snapshot to
include the attached readme.

	Also, Yuriy Tsibizov has reported some success with an Audigy
card so that may be usable via his driver.


Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Pinky: Well, I think so Brain, but balancing a family, and a career?
Ooh, it's all too much for me.
-------------- next part --------------
This is an experimental sequencer.  There are many sections that are
completely missing (like midimapper, take a look if you don't believe

The module currently assumes 1 sequencer, 1 midi port.  It probably
won't work any other way.

What works:
	I can use playmidi from the ports or midiplay (included) to
play most midi files I've found so far on an external Yamaha keyboard.
I use a DB15 (joystick+midi) -> midiin / midiout/ joystick cable.  It
cost me $20 (canadian) and is a generic product.
	Kldload'ing and kldunload'ing seems to work.
	For fun and games, playmidi in the ports can be hacked to do
some interesting things.

Included soundcard drivers

	Anything that was supported in 5.1 using snd_cmi or
