Here we clearly don't agree. The method I proposed allows any combination
of host and plugin toolkits, as long as the common factor is X11, and it
doesn't require the host or plugin to know about each others toolkits or
to link with them (which seems to be problem with existing plugins, see
other posts in this thread).
This excludes Windows (TM), but again, I couln't care less.
The only other alternative seems to be that each plugin is either
using the same toolkit as the host, or it becomes a separate app.
The latter doesn't scale. A real-life DAW session could easily have
a hundred plugins. I'm not waiting to see that work.
