Wait... Freepats is trying to be "build soundfonts in sf2 format" out
of... free sf2 files? What is the added value?

Anyway, how will this stack up against the Fluid soundfont, which is
also widely included in Linux distributions?

I noticed... If at least there was a notice to that effect it wouldn't
be so confusing...
