Given how easy it is to embded a window from app B into one of app A
I wonder why LV2 (or any plugin standard) would bother with GUI-toolkit
specific extensions at all.
I just did a simple test:
* added a few lines (< 10) of code to jaaa,
* started Ardour and opened its 'Locations' window,
* and had jaaa running within it in seconds.
And that's wihout any cooperation from Ardour. A plugin could use
whatever X11 toolkit it likes and with minimal support from the host
do the same. Apart from that it would need some cooperation to transfer
data between the dsp code and the GUI, but this can be made almost
transparent to the host.
There are three of them, and Alleline.
