For media manipulation in general (which would include MIDI playback), I'm
sure Gene would like help with GMF.

In general, I really disagree with your idea of having to name "official"
pieces for GNOME. We are a project to help the general community make
advances on the end-user front, not a project to start making sweeping
suggestions of what people should/should not use just because we have a
little recognition in one area. I think the as-needed adoption of things
like SDL (which I consider the "right" solution for games, although many
good ones exist) is proof that no meddling is needed from the Gnome

(Do not interpret this as discouraging you from implementing a solution to
a problem you see :)
