So long as this new port comes after all the others, including audio,
what's the problem? Our MusE can cope, can the others?
I agree that if this new port were to be sandwiched among the others
or if he were removing ports, that's breakage.
How is a plugin supposed to grow and mature?
I mean the Caps ToneStack gained a few 'model' values over the years.
Did it change unique ID?
Every time he wants to add a new port he's got to change the ID?
So we end up with ten different versions with ten different IDs?
Maybe the others are referring to breaking lrdf (I'm just learning lrdf now).
Or if someone tries to load a song referring to the new plugin version,
on an older system having the old plugin version.
But I know MusE can still handle that, when loading a song it just ignores
any port ID out of range of the number of ports.
It's a tough decision I know, I empathize, and if the consensus is that
the ID should be changed, I guess you gotta do it.
But surely we could accept this small change, can't we?
I mean what, really, would break?

Thanks.
