Oh ok, that makes more sense.

Is there any reason why you have to have MIDI files mixed in with other format 
files?  If you only want to play a bunch of MIDIs you can use Timidity by 
itself - "timidity *.mid"  However since Timidity is probably not installed, 
it would be a much cleaner solution to include XMMS + plugins with Geexbox (I 
can't imagine running Linux without XMMS!!!)
