I say put kmidi maintainership on the jobs file, and let the word spread 
around that if nobody takes over and shapes it up, kmidi will be dropped.  
If the first 3.2 beta comes and nobody does start caring for it, drop it.

Why wait so long?  Software synth allows everyone to use it, but kmid's 
dependence on hardware makes it less generally useful.  So I suppose if 
someone slapped some optional software synth into kmid, then we'd be fine, 
too. :-)
