Even more than VST's, which tend to depend quite a lot on the win32
runtime environment, AU plugins are inextricably wedded to Cocoa and
the CoreAudio framework. It is almost unimaginable to me that you
could ever implement support for AU plugins without the whole of OS X
being available at runtime.
