Since Flash is interactive, I don't think it fits into a framwork even
remotely like this. Its functionality is more similar to that of KSVG, and
should have (roughly) the same interface.

MIDI support requires supporting yet another category of hardware, and I've
never seen it used in conjunction with streamed audio or video. I think this
too should be kept in a different framework. Also, most advanced MIDI
applications will probably want to deal with the individual drivers
themselves (being only OSS/Free and ALSA for *NIX, as far as I know), because
of the differences in functionality. I've written a MIDI sequencer myself
(Sanetracker in kmusic), so I have some experience with this.

You can quote me on this.
