Plus I just realized that even if the channels work like I'm hoping,
how in the world do I actually use them? My MIDI files can only have
information for indicating one of 16 channels so how would I tell
FluidSynth to use channel 17?  I guess there could be a specific
control_code or something to indicate switching to a different bank of
16 channels?
