Actually I've played around with it a bit and Scala seems to export the
file timidity wants directly.  It also exports something it calls a
shell script that allegedly works with fluidsynth, but I haven't figured
out how to make fluidsynth read that yet.  I also don't have Timidity
reading both the font and the tuning table at the same time yet, but I'm
still working on it.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but I know
that World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
