(define-ccl-program midi-notenames
    ((read r0)
     (if ((r0 & 240) == 144)
         ((read r0)
          (r0 //= 12)
          (branch r7 "c" "des" "d" "es" "e" "f" "fis" "g" "as" "a" "bes" "b")
          (branch r0 ",,,," ",,," ",," "," " " "'" "''" "'''" "''''" "'''''" 

(define-ccl-program no-conversion
  '(1 ((read r0)(write r0))))

(define-coding-system 'midi-notenames
  "This converts Midi note-on events to note names"
  :mnemonic ?M
  :coding-type 'ccl
  :charset-list '(iso-8859-1)
  :eol-type 'unix
  :ccl-decoder 'midi-notenames
  :ccl-encoder 'no-conversion)

This actually seems to do the trick for the original stuff I'd been
wrestling with.  I still have to figure out how to parameterize stuff
without redefining CCL programs all the time.
