I'm not interested in starting that discussion again, but it's a  
tradeoff between making life significantly harder for plugins that  
want to do more sophisticated things, and making it slightly harder  
for all.

I don't think it's at all obvious which is the better option on the  
whole, but I know what I prefer.

Control value ramps seems to be the solution of choice, but  
historically LADSPA didn't have those.
