I'll just put my hand up as someone who's at least interested in DSSI
(for what it's worth!):

I'd like to rewrite my academic research project (a genetic algorithm
type thing) as a DSSI host. If that comes together I'll write a couple
of synth plugins as well. Unfortunately the "real" research has to
continue whatever the software architecture, so time is limited.

It's great to hear that DSSI support is planned for Ardour (on
whatever timescale) and that VST work continues in one form or
another. I wish I had the time and especially the expertise to
contribute to one of those.
