I got your point originally, no problem.

I'll keep that in mind.

I think, by default, FS really does not enforce strict GM-mode at all (ignore 
all bank changes).  I believe that FS, by default, allows bank changes.

I mean that the (channel==9) has been the hard-coded hack at the time, and is 
now replaced by the new hack "is_drum_channel" field.  At initialization, the 
new code still hard-code a 9, but not anywhere else as they were previously.

The later part of the comment on ignoring bank select is "comment in the code" 
that can be implemented either way, based on what I can understand from various 
bit and pieces of GM-spec docs and related documents.  Basically, FS can do 
whatever in this case.  GM specs, and official stand on this issue is a wash, 
water under the bridge, nothing, nada.
