Hmm... what if i (as many others) are so lucky to have a HW-based
midi-playing soundcard (such as the AWE 64)? Methinks maybe they wants
to use it...

Could it be possible to do something like MS does - in the gstreamer
setup, give an option to either use timidity (with a full patchset - the
patches included don't even rival my old SB16, and there is (as far as i
have heard) plenty of space on cd4...) - or HW sequencer (including
external) - if aviable. Then any app using gst (ex. rythmbox) could
easyly play .mid.

But another thing - when i move my mouse over some music-file in
nautilus - it displays a little note in a speak-bubble. Is it meant that
nautilus should preweiv them that way? Seems like a good idea, but its
not working...
