[LAD] Importing automation in Ardour

Hello all,

Would there be a simple way to import plugin
automation data into an Ardour session ?

'Simple' may include writing some software, but
not any major project :-)

The situation I want to handle is this:

We have a Csound, SC3, PD, program generating
a number of audio signals, and also simple
OSC commands that would control external 
processing of these signals, e.g. surround
panning or movement implemented by an 
external system.

The signals each become a mono track in Ardour,
while the OSC controlled parameters are stored
as automation data for a LADSPA plugin in each
track. On playback, the plugin just sends this
data to the external application.

The whole point is to combine a number of such
compositions into a single Ardour session that
can be looped without any user intervention.
