to summarize: there seem to be no objections to adding such a hint
(stefano's initial critique was about just using it without adding it to
the standard LADSPA header, iiuc, which has never been intended).
some people opined that it could as well be done in LV2 using an
extension. there is no consensus yet about whether this belongs in the
existing units extension, but this is orthogonal to the LADSPA issue.
during the discussion, fons brought up the issue of adding an enum type
to integer ports, to enable hosts to display meaningful string values
for radio-button-type controls. the general usefulness of this was
an RFC for a LADSPA 1.2 revision including both the "periodic" and the
"enum" hints will be posted in a new thread.
