null midi device

Exactly. There are at least two Win32 games (one from the Win95 age and
another from the Win98 era) that require the presence of a MIDI device.
The game Final Fantasy VIII supports MIDI via DirectMusic, so a
DirectMusic implementation would solve that, but Final Fantasy VII still
uses the old Windows MIDI device (old meaning it's not using
DirectMusic, which is a more modern solution). So, I think a null midi
device is still a good idea, I just haven't had the time to look into it
too much. (summer plans?)
