This shouldn't be too difficult. You just compose a MIDI message
according to the device's MIDI-specs and write these bytes to the
raw MIDI-device and that's all. The hard part is designing a good
user interface. A primitive script language might just handle
a text-symbols->byte-stream conversion.

Hmm, conversion to what? As long as you just send raw MIDI-messages,
I don't think there will be any legal problems.
