I would really like an *easy* and *intuitive* way to map 
arbitrary MIDI controllers to various functions, filters, 
whatever... I have this PCR-30 with 8 knobs, 8 sliders and a 
joystick and would really like to be able to do something with 
all that twiddly goodness that i can tweak while actually 
playing rather than stopping, editing a config file or whatever.

Something like a "Map a controller..." menu option that then 
listens for a MIDI controller producing a lot of data and then 
asks you to click on the filter or whatever that you want to map 
it to, that'd be nice.  Maybe that's out there in some linux 
sound app I haven't tried yet, but I haven't yet gotten to the 
point where I can play a jackified synth from my keyboard for 
any length of time without the whole thing crashing, so I guess 
"not throwing a segv every 5 minutes" would be a nice feature to 
have too ;)
