There is a disabled build option for a DSSI interface in ZynAddSubFX, so
it looks like Paul Nasca also has been thinking about this. I managed to
get it to build as a plugin with some minor hacks, but I couldn't get
any sound from it.

Nedko Arnaudov is working on rewriting the ZynAddSubFX synthesis engines
as separate LV2 plugins. I don't know if he's planning to do all the
effects as well.
