In terms of SDL_sound, timidity is probably the only answer, since the API is 
(intentionally) meant to decode into a waveform in a memory buffer, which may 
or may not be going to a sound device.

When I take a hacksaw to SDL_mixer, I _will_ be leaving the native MIDI support 
in there, since it makes sense to leave that functionality, but I can't see a 
good way to do native midi inside SDL_sound itself.
