But they also use Jack for audio. This is my frustration. If I want to support
both audio and midi, then I have to learn 2 completely different and conflicting
api's. Perhaps this should go in the "what sucks about linux audio" thread.
What I could do 15+ years ago under Window still mystifies me in how to do it
under linux. (And, no, I'm not a shill for MS. I use linux for everything
other than audio, and I really, really want it for audio as well.)

[insert rambling conspiracy or other rant of your choice here]

If Jack is used for audio, then shouldn't there be a kind-of general-purpose
Jack midi sequencer? (... and the crowd muttered, "Idiot. You have no idea
what you're talking about.")

And, furthermore, you young whippersnappers... what does that mean anyway...
Nevermind, time for a nap, I suppose.
