I anyone aware of ANY non-OSS tool to load soundfonts into
an SBlive card ?

If not, would anyone be interested in looking in to how to
rewrite sfxload so it, at least, uses the native ALSA API ?

Even with ALSA in the 2.6 kernel (yay, no more modules) and
most apps now converted to ALSA/jack I am still stuck with
this small but useful utility. I get around it by simply not
using the the soundfont capability of my SBlive. Pity.
