fomus's MIDI import is pretty basic at the moment--it reads in note
events and routes them to parts based on MIDI program changes but
doesn't try to do anything more complicated than that (it has no idea
what VSL switches are).

if you let me know what score markings you're interested in, i can
provide a few examples of how to get those into Finale (if it's
possible...  most basic score markings are possible, a few things like
chord tremelos and harmonics are problematic in xml).  i haven't worked
with VSL keyswitches so i'm not sure how to interpret those.

also, i should finally get another alpha/rc release out soon, which will
have xml bug fixes.
