I'm not sure I understand the question. You would like ChucK to be
represented as a sort of virtual MIDI synth even after ChucK has

I could see the use-case but I think I am also opposed to programs
that have returned leaving stuff behind. Could you explain a bit about
why it wouldn't do to have ChucK open your keyboard straight and
release it at termination? If that wouldn't do, would it be enough to
have some sort of virtual port that you could route to and that ChuCk
could open?

run into trouble.
