Only that the mostly work only as jack clients, not as DSSI/MuseSoftsynth
plugins. I can see that a modular synth would be hard to make work in
these systems (because ofthe automation complexity), but a frozen version
of a particular setup could be made to appear as a muse/ssi synth.

I understand that DSSI and Muse softsynth APIs are not widely used (2 DSSI
hosts, and 1 Muse that I know of), but more synths would propote more host

Do you mean working as, or loading?
