Right, so the xml file is not mandated to represent gui info. I see.

So if i understand you correctly, each host needs to present a
specific gui for plugins. Doesn't this make ladspa not partcularly

place? I thought the point of ladspa was that you could just install
third party pluginsand the gui would just work.
