Did you realise there development of a similar thing already started, even
under the name GlucK, although it's not currently in an accessible form?
 Well worth you doing a search; there were some comments not so long ago,
including from Ge on some of the pitfalls encountered IIRC.

Well, I haven't used either Linux or C++ for a while, and haven't done very
much C++ so I'm not talking from all that much experience here.  Codeblocks
is fairly decent I think.  I gather CDT for Eclipse is pretty mature now -
Eclipse is great for Java, not so sure about C++.  Well worth a try.  There
are some other well established more linux-centric IDEs like KDevelop and
Ajunta... but having done little more than "hello world" with them I'll not

Cheers, and good luck with the project,
