Haha, nice analogy! Surely you realize that most cars are sold with only the 
basic standard-wheels? Sad but it seems that this also the case for lv2. If 
you want to have sport-wheels or a bigger gas tank or a speedometer it seems 
you have to rely on extensions to the basic version...

BTW: I wouldn't think bad about the extension-thing. If only it was optional 
and most plugins would run with the basic features and only allow for more 
with extensions available. But if I need to have hosts supporting certain 
features to use the nice plugins this would have me stick with ladspa...

Another thing: I don't think Linux should ever try to get into the field where 
certain interchangeable parts like plugins only work in some rare conditions. 
That is what windows already provides, I wanted to get rid of that and 
switched to linux...
