Well, because I intended to enable wildmidi support as soon as wildmidi got 
approved, but I forgot :|

I think this is a bad idea, we really want the user to have todo less to get a

It might be an idea to put some of the less often used sinks (jack, nas, ?) in 
a -extras package though, to avoid pulling in deps most people don't have a use
