if the GUI is in another process, its really absurdly hard for the
host to add its own controls to the window. not impossible, but a
level of hard that doesn't actually buy the user (or developer)
anything. this means that the kinds of generic "every plugin" controls
like "bypass" or "preset" that ardour adds to LADSPA and AU windows
would vanish. not a huge cost, but a real one.
