[chuck-users] Does a working FluidSynth chugin exist?

Hi Spencer,

Previously I only got the chuck_dl error 126. I don't know what's  
happened, but Chuck does load the chugin now. However, it doesn't work: it  
doesn't have any of the functions related to FluidSynth (at least 'open'  
or 'noteOn'). That said, I'm unqualified to even compile these things  
properly, so I wouldn't go looking for bugs based on my strange process of  
getting the chug file to appear.
