IMO, it is much more appropriate to provide this information primary at
the plugin/host web sites. Providing it at lv2plug.in site is nice but I
doubt it will be the place where ppl will look first. Also please note
that this can be integrated at apps.linuxaudio.org.

IMHO, the two basic questions that user will have are:

1. Will the plugin X that I use a lot work on host Y that I want to try?
2. Will the host W that I use a lot work well with the plugin Z I've found?
