music formats are not relevant. Anyone can design a musical format,
and many have done so producing a lot of crap. It's much more
difficult to write a software package that actually does something
useful; the input format for the package can serve nicely as a
format. That's the litmus test for a good format: it should contain
enough information (and not more) to let a computer do something
useful with it.

My personal favorite is Python (, the language is not
very difficult to learn, and a lot of fun to use.
