The PC itself famously became an open platform after Compaq clean-room
reverse engineered the BIOS. This is considered legal - Someone who has NOT
agreed to the VST SDK license can re-create headers that mirror the function
of the VST SDK. They must do this by examining/debugging a running VST Host,
not by looking at copy of the original SDK.
You can't include the official VST SDK in a GLP plugin or host.
