    Actually, no.  Most people want a reverb that doesn't require a PhD. to set
up.  They want simple controls and a number of alternative spaces (one of the
reasons I like the TAP Reverberator).  There are a couple of VST reverbs that
sound great and are simple to use.  In the long run, what I'm looking for is
something that sounds good.  I don't really care where it comes from or whether
it's free or "free" or libre or "open source" or shareware or freeware.  If I
could afford a Lexicon reverb unit per track I'd buy a bunch of those and use
them outboard and not worry about the plugins.  So, the bottom line for me is
that it needs to sound good - period.  All other considerations (other than my
limited amount of funds ;-) are irrelevant.
