Yes, I agree it would be good to design an open standard. SF2 is a
rather open standard, but rather limited. DLS is pretty open standard
and much more flexible, but it is hard to get free documentation on the
DLS2 format (they want you to buy it). XML and FLAC/WAV sounds good to
me. I've been thinking, that with the current OO nature of libInstPatch
it would be pretty easy just to export the object properties to XML
which would lead to a "standard" for storing any formats that
libInstPatch supports.

My particular interest in linuxsampler is in writing a linuxsampler
plugin to Swami for supporting multiple instrument formats (like what is
currently possible with FluidSynth, albeit in a SoundFont oriented way).

Not really, libInstPatch was designed to handle multiple instrument
formats (it already supports DLS which as you know GIG is an extension
of). You may be thinking of older Swami 0.9.x and libInstPatch which
were very SF2 oriented. Granted, native GigaSampler write support isn't
a priority for me, since I consider it one of the more proprietary of
the currently supported formats. I'd much rather someone store to a
more open format but still be able to leverage off of gig files,
although I would love to see good native support in Swami for gig.
