Please go forward. I am in the new-maintainer queue still, and I guess
I can't do much now. There are too many unpackaged software around I
can't do it all by myself (especially when many of them are very
hardcoded into Redhat/Suse-looking ways and needs many tweaking to be
able to port to Debian)

I was looking at ALSA, and it doesn't quite have that capability. For
example, it would be nice if I could link any of the sequencer's midi
output to timidity/aRTs/octal/pd.
Yes, one fine example would be "pd" packaged in Debian. It would
benefit greatly from internal midi-routing mechanism. I want to be
able to control it via "vkeybd" program ;)
Midi tools and sound generators (?) are not very actively included
into Debian. Maybe not many people were interested into it. I feel it
is a very big shortcoming (because I am using Windows for music work).
