Let me state once and for all, even it will not gain me any popularity:

  Anyone who thinks that writing a range check on a fraction A/B is too
  difficult is very probably completely incompetent and should not waste
  his/her time trying to write audio DSP code for a plugin.

This is not a reflection on Steve's competences which are beyond doubt.

But if the word of Linux Audio wants to accommodate amateurism and 
ignorance at the expense of professionalism and experience, I will
not hesitate a second to say goodbey. I'll feel sad for a few days
but not much longer.


Follie! Follie! Delirio vano è questo !
