Fair enough, but my point was that there are midi file formats which are
by definition unstreamable, therefore a midi plugin needs to support
streaming and globbing - and globbing might be easiest to implement
first. The modplug plugin also reads an entire file before playing so
its a valid technique. (as least it will be when the spider is fixed to
handle it ;)
