So the logical thing would be to write a MIDI file interpreter in
ChucK.  Has anyone done that?

Given ChucK's limited string and file processing it might be a
challenge to write it in pure ChucK.  You could write a MIDI to ChucK
converter in [insert favorite language here], and define a standard
library of ChucK instruments to match the standard MIDI instruments.

Sounds like a worthwhile project for some ambitious music hacker.
