Haven't say that, nor suggest that. It's just a example, It is just a 
other way to go.
And, let me tell you, this way is full of fun.

Have I mention that the toolkit surly include a interface to plot the 
results and beside faust code, it could compile ready to run Lv2 and 

However, this list here is the wrong place to discus that any further,
I just hope that some people here get interested in such a approve
(Tim you are more then welcome to join us),
if, please join us at
  guitarix-developer at lists.sourceforge.net

to discus and eventually help us to get it going.
