Ah, silly me :-( Yes, of course. The text events could only be
useful when playing a .mid file, but never in real-time midi.
It really is only a SysEx that can handle an arbitrary-length
text-string in real-time ....

These are the events that ALSAMIDI (ie: realtime) recognises:
including SND_SEQ_EVENT_SYSEX but no text-events.

Sorry 'bout that,

No problem.  I got excited though thinking that there might exist some general purpose Sysex commands ;-)
