Seems to me that you have definitely implemented a nicely coded 
interface that could relatively easily be integrated with linux sampler. 
Don't sell yourself short.

Currently there is no actual gui although and as Mark said Rui is 
looking into the qt version.

Looking through the design docs they have laid out the portocols very 

Assuming you have some spare time it would not take you very long to add 
the calls for each button and place that shell up for one of the main 
developers to make some changes to the backend. Then you will be 
transformed from "man working alone on small project which accomplishes 
some new things" to "part of professional team creating new project that 
amazes a whole sector of the professional audio world".

Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
