Little help with a script

Ok, here is the thing. I need aplaymidi to be able to retrieve and playback a remote midi file for use in mozplugger. I was thinking having wget retrieve the file in /tmp then having aplaymidi use that, or maybe there's a better way. What would be the best way to go about this?

Ok, I appreciate the response, but flat out wrong.

I'm aware of timidity and the the fact that it's used commonly with mozplugger. I want to play hardware midi, not software like timidity. Why? because timidity sucks when it comes to performance. hardware midi brings the cpu use up to 3% or so, that's it. It has to be played by aplaymidi or something similar that can retrieve from the net. I haven't found that so a script seems like the only option.
