Damned script-kiddies :(

So, since this discussion is kind of relevant here, I try get the
message thru anyway. Sorry Chris!

Mmm .. This would replace, I think, all of your considerations on how to
extend LADSPA. It is (probably?) the only extension really needed. MIDI
is a very powerful protocol, and the beuty is that the client needs only
to implement those parts it needs to get going. 

For a synthesizer one can ignore start, stop and pause as well as SMPTE,
but for a sequencer or arpeggiator timing would be the name of the game.

As a synthesizer developer I *could*, if I wished so, implement
running-status and thus discover that I have been disconnected, but it
is not required ...
