<lame-interrupt>maybe not thee solution, but erm... qtractor (svn trunk)
already does it for the lv2 external uis (only one existing attow, Nedko's
4band filter?

the problem here seems to be re.hosting lv2 gtk ui extension based
i'm too lazy to tell whether it's feasible under qt, maybe not, maybe
outright wrong :) why not have it all as external ui? Nedko has proved
it's doable. why is there a gtk ui extension in the first place, for
crying out loud? why call it "extension" ? seems more like an "occlusion"

plugin guis should be freely written using gtk or any other toolkit.
requiring the host to be of the very same flesh-and-blood is what i find
questionable, to say the least ;)
