actually, I have just submitted a patch that let's you use /dev/sequencer, or timidity, (or the windows driver if in windows) without any recompilations or messing about with -DUSE_TIMIDTY etc.
(I found that my external midi keyboard still works when midi is sent to /dev/sequencer.)
I would very much appreciate it if experienced c++ people could leave comments on this patch -- I am learning c++ here, and am treating all this a learning experience. But the patch seems to work just fine for me (untested for windows though)
