Well I wrote that rawmidi patch originally as a bit of a hack to get midi music before the adlib emulation code was built-in. As I say, it was quite a hack. I guess I could update it for teh latest version of ScummVM, and hope it gets submitted. I mentioned it several times back when I wrote it, and even asked why it wouldn't be commited, but the developers ignored me.
