I agree, it sounds ridiculous -- on first hearing at least. I'm going
to have to go and read some of this ardour-dev discussion (it's not a
list I subscribe to) and see if it makes any more sense to me then.
I realise it's not easy (or even always possible) to do the Right Thing
in the host -- my own host has some way to go too -- but I don't
understand why it should be better to create dozens of spurious plugins
than to give the user the information they need and let them decide how
a plugin should be handled.
