I also note that the General Midi specification lists the sounds as
1 - Acoustic Grand ... 128 - Gunshot. So there's another argument for
being 1 based for program change.

That table says it comes from the Midi Manufacturers association, but
it can't be right, can it? OK, note 60 is suposed to be middle C, aka
C4 (iff you chose that designation for middle C). But note 57, three
half steps down, is in the A column on line 3, which would mean you'd
call note 57 A3 while calling note 60 C4. Surely you normally switch
the octave number when going between G and A, right?!?
'nother words, trust that table about as far as you can spit, if that.
