I'm sorry I can't help you directly Julien but smurf just
crashes on me after a few minutes and I've never been able
to figure out how to use it anyway, and swami doesn't exist
as a Gentoo package.

Along these lines, and this would help Julien, is anyone
aware of any shell tools to deal with sf2 soundfonts ?

I would be very interested in cooperating with anyone else
that may be able to help build a set of command line sf2
extraction and rebuild tools.
