Here's a bigger list:

On Monday, I posted this regarding TiMidity++:
Since then, I have discovered that a Debian package does exist for the EAW
patches, and I edited the following page accordingly:
Fed up with the incompleteness of the stock config file for the EAW
patches, I went to the following page and installed the fifth soundfont
from the top:
I now have the EAW patches loaded and then overridden by the soundfont.
This way, the patches fill in the gaps in the soundfont. The results have
been largely excellent, with only one major mistake: In one single-track,
piano-only MIDI file, a drum kit was substituted for the piano. Note that
that page also has a different (better?) config file for the EAW patches,
but I have not tried it since this soundfont mostly sounds oh so much
better than those patches.

I will be willing to demonstrate the setup with whatever MIDI files people
