I think Midi to be basically just Jan's work, and I am skeptical that he
would know the details of the code more intimately than the last few
persons who worked on it since it's been years since either Jan or
Han-Wen have significantly added any code to LilyPond.

I would be rather surprised if either kept a secret stack of notes to
refer to when getting back to LilyPond.
