I don't know how awemidi and timidi work today, but i think they should
provide their own /dev/sequencer mpu401 interface.

That way playersoftware such as playmidi needn't care about wathever 'non
mpu401 Midi card' ther's on the system.

I don't know if Esound should be bloated up to include midi support, but i
could imagine timidi running as a daemon, talking to Esound, so your dsp
isn't blocked while playing midis.
