Midi is currently supported through an ALSA sequencer 'client', i.e. the
freebob device acts as an ALSA sequencer client providing access to all
hardware MIDI ports.

In the future I think the jackd backend will include native jack-midi
support (once that is matured enough), while the upcoming ALSA driver
will be either seq or rawmidi based. I would think that rawmidi would be
the best solution, but I didn't look into it yet.
