I think this is a great idea... Can we expand this to include anything?
Like ZynAddSubFX patches, AMSynth, Om, etc.. All that stuff? If there is
such a site for those types of files already, please feel free to pass
it along. :)

Maybe posting to the list would become pretty busy... Perhaps a website
where you can add entries with filename/contents/description would be
good? That way we don't get 500 emails a day. :)

I would be willing to work on that website if you all think it's a good
idea. I could put checkboxes too for file contents, and have icons to
show what each file contains, like check off if it's a MIDI file, WAV
files, DLS, SF2, etc. I think it'd be a really good idea, and I have the
time to do up the site, and I can host it on (unless
someone more generic, ex:, wants to host it).

As far as networks go, is there a good command-line client that we could
use that will run in a screen session and not take up a gig of RAM?
Ideally, IMHO, the FrostWire/LimeWire clients are great, but I'd prefer
a screen session to leave it running in the background.
