[PD] OT: Open source sequencer

I am a PD newbie...I'm open to using pipe, xeq, or qlist for my 
sequencing. Because of my lack of experience with these, perhaps, it 
appears to me like I'd actually have to build the front end to the 
sequencer...and/or I would be without the editing features of a 
commercial sequencer (at least in any kind of convenient and 
time-efficient package.) It would make my day to be wrong about this. 
Are there any front end MIDI sequencers for PD already built on the 
engines you mention that I could take a look at?

I checked out Jazz before I posted. It doesn't look promising outside of 
Linux at this time, but I will look further. The current development 
(since 2000) is at http://jazzplusplus.sourceforge.net/

Thanks in advance for the guidance.
