Thank you for the suggestion.

At the moment, it appears that midi.c is broken on at least one
architecture.  Fixing it would be a pain, and would do nothing to
reduce the problem it poses.  Moving to a completely python
solution would represent a solid step forward, both in terms of
reducing technical debt, and also in terms of a new contributor
getting familiar with our development process.

At that point, an interested person -- perhaps yourself? -- could
offer further patches which improved the quality of the lilypond
