I'm glad you took that decision.

As I told you, I think it would be great if you could make kmid use 
directly timidity++ instead of using ALSA's sequencer interface. Even if 
the right way to do it is the way ALSA provides, people using a non-Linux 
operating system like FreeBSD, or OSS cannot use timidity with kmid (yet), 
so there's still a reason to keep kmidi around. Will you (please) have a 
look at that? :)

I would say that people using FreeBSD won't like the idea as long as they 
cannot use kmid.
