AFAIK linuxsampler is completely seperate from UIs, and talks via a
text-based IPC mechanism (which should be OSC IMO, but isn't)

That would be nice I suppose, but not my cup of tea.  I just want a
plugin that plays a single sample when a gate goes high, not a
monstrosity like linuxsampler.  I plan on writing one soon..
