Does it have a midi import feature? I am trying to help out a friend who 
wants to be able to print out music that he has played on the keyboard 
in notation form, partly as a way of learning notation for himself, and 
partly as a way of communicating with other musicians who like to see 
things in this form. (He is a good pianist but mostly self taught and 
doesn't work in this way normally).

I've tried most of the programs available for linux, and none of them 
really do what he wants. The main problems are that:
- he wants the scores in piano stave notation, with two staves, not just 
on a single stave. This is quite difficult to get working from what I've 
tried so far.
- the stuff he plays is quite dense and poly/multi/non/rhythmical, and 
programs like lilypond that I've tried seem to get indigestion with it. 
This might be a problem with rosegarden's lilypond export feature though.

Any help with this from you or anyone else on the list would be much 
appreciated, as I've been trying to find something that works for over a 
month now with no luck.
