General MIDI SoundFont support

The vita port has disabled MT-32 emulation due to high CPU overhead of this feature. I'm wondering if the same performance hit affects General MIDI SoundFont implementation from this topic: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=14541
FatBoy SoundFont weights 300+MB, so from what I understand it's not really an emulation but full instrumental sound samples package.

I've checked options in the vita port (latest SVN version) and following settings are not present:
Audio -> Preferred Device -> FluidSynth

Midi -> GM Device -> FluidSynth

If implementing it is possible on Vita without breaking the framerate I'd like to request this feature.

Me too!
Or better is include support of "Pix's hacks" (to replace MIDI with OGG-tracks).

There is no port of the fluidsynth library for the Vita. I don't think anybody is working on it either, since it has a lot of dependencies AFAIK.
