Sounds good - Mark, could you take care of asking P.A.Loeb about this?

Basically we'd like him to allow you to donate your MIDIGenerator code 
to the ASF, without having to mention him as the copyright holder.

If he agrees, I think a notice like this one should be sufficient and 
would not cause any legal problems with the ASF:

	The MIDI file parsing parts of this class are based on code from the 
XMidi project, written
	by  Peter Arthur Loeb ( and used with 
	The warranty disclaimer of the MIT license 
	applies to Peter Arthur Loeb's code.

The alternative, as Vadim mentions, would be to include P.A.Loeb's code 
as a jar with the appropriate license, but this would require you to 
refactor your MIDIGenerator.
