What would be the best setup for a third case: sending from Dosemu to
Dosemu or more generally: sending from one program, that can only use
rawmidi/OSS ports to another program, that can only use rawmidi/OSS

Assuming I have a virmidi card as card 2, then I would have four ports
shown in aconnect: Virtual Raw MIDI 2-0', Virtual Raw MIDI 2-1' etc. I
know and actually used the fact, that these are available as rawmidi
ports in /dev/snd/midiC2D0, /dev/snd/midiC2D1, ...

So connecting like this "aconnect 80:0 80:1" will let me read at
/dev/snd/midiC2D1 what I write to /dev/snd/midiC2D0. Is there a way to
access these "sub-ports" through /dev/midi?? or /dev/amidi?? as well?
