It seems like it would just add confusion in the long run, an
additional redundant setting and the need to synchronize
midi-bank-select with the MIDI mode setting, once real MIDI mode
handling is added.  I don't see an issue with stating that midi.mode
just determines the bank select mode for now, with additional
compatibility features to be added in the future.  Anyone else have
any opinions on this?
