Well, this effort which you have so vehemently attacked was an effort to
establish this functionality in hosts.
However, since convolution does not need it, as you have pointed out, I
no longer plan to waste my time implementing either fixed or power of 2
in Ardour until there is a tangible reason to do so, and I doubt anybody
else will waste their time either. Tangible means plugin code.
Progress happens by people writing plugins, and the spec/hosts adapting
to accommodate their needs. All this mailing list bullshit is just a
waste of time. Serves me right for attempting to address needs that do
not actually exist.
Both features remain trivially supported in Jalv which can serve as a
test host for anyone interested in writing such plugins. If, and only
if, someone does, it will no longer be a waste of time to support them
in other hosts where it is more difficult.
