Hallo,

Huh? I think, you're confusing something here. Is it too early in the morning?
;)

Quoting GPL, v2 (which I think still applies to the GPL LADSPA plugins):

You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section
2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above
provided that you also do one of the following:

a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code,
which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange; or,

b) Accompany it with a written offer ... [to get the source somehow, Frank]

c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
distribute corresponding source code ... [only for non-commercial distribution,
Frank].

So as soon as you *distribute* GPL software, modified or not, you *have* to offer
the source code, modified or not.

Ciao
