Great feedback from the list guys, am more excited about it now than  
i was when i got it mostly functional!

I will definitely add keyboard shortcuts - There's a QT4 port in the  
works, not sure how configurable QT3's shortcuts are. I think i'll  
put in some hardcoded ones initially. If user-configurable actions  
are easy to implement in QT3 then i might just do that.

The actual electribe hardware has a 'virtual keyboard' mode where the  
16 step keys can be used as a 1-and-a-bit octave keyboard, but i  
think i may just implement midi recording + midi thru to allow a real  
keyboard to be used, or the virtual keyboard of your choice - i  
really want to make this sequencer simple and modular, rather than an  
all-things-to-all-people sequencer.

I'm also going to fix the JACK API calls that are breaking on older  
versions of JACK (requires an nframes_t arg on some calls when newer  
versions of the API don't)

I've had reported slowness problems with gentoo - I'll add a debug  
enable flag to the app can be launched with this to generate a report  
I can use to try and identify the problem.

Thanks for your interest and thoughts,
