Yes. Please rewind a few messages and read again.
The idea was an extension that requires the host
to obtain a pointer to a C++ object from the plugin.
This C++ object (derived from some base class which
is part of the extension definition) then provides
all other information (ports, process method, etc.).
This would bypass all LV2 methods, but still be an
LV2 plugin.
