rooted in an older way of thinking about the overall workflow.
anyway, i've been through this debate at least 4 times in the last 2
years. i didn't persuade people who feel that its critical, and they
didn't persuade me. status quo.

i didn't say that. but i will say this. i could have had this
conversation with you on IRC in about 50% of the time it takes via
IRC is one of the channels i meant. but what i meant much more was a
reference to those people who, either via IRC, email or the bug
tracker, get involved in an issue or feature and move it forward by
(a) creating the "loop" (b) staying in the "loop". there are many bugs
in ardour that i haven't fixed because i don't personally see them as
big issues and because nobody has convinced me otherwise. it doesn't
mean i'm right, but it does mean that if i (or someone else) is going
to switch focus to feature X or bug Y, even though i (or someone else)
isn't that motivated to do so, someone has to play advocate for the
role. and its not an advocate in a sea of silence. there are long
lists of bugs and long lists of cool features that we *want* to work
on, at all times. for something to rise up above that particular ocean
of noise does, unfortunately, sometimes require a bit of advocacy that
goes beyond an email to a mailing list describing a problem.

well, panners in a3 are now plugins, of a fashion (they are a bit
different from normal plugin APIs for a variety of reasons, primarily
the fact that they never do in-place processing). its quite likely
that at least the simplest of your ambi LADSPA plugins will show up in
that fashion in the not too distant future, with a GUI very similar to
the one in that screen shot.
when i was in berlin attending "serious" concerts of electro-acoustic
music, there seemed to be quite a range of opinion about ambisonics
versus VBAP. although i tend to take your word for it on such matters,
there were quite several smart people with years of experience in
multi-speaker setups who had real issues with ambisonics and felt that
VBAP was generally preferable. i don't want to make people choose.
