The issue is VST which is controlled by Steinberg and will always be at

Look at the VST situation:
There are windows VSTs, they always require wine and in addition to
that the Steinberg VST SDK, which is not redistributable or vestige.
There are linux VSTs, which always require the non-redistributable
Steinberg VST SDK.
Wine and audio itself is a PITA, having to rely on something that can
only be obtained from a company like Steinberg is not only annoying,
because ever user has to obtain the VST SDK from them, but also
dangerous, because they control it.

Nobody will have anything against the improvement of the situation,
but VST just isn't the way to go, mainly for above mentioned reasons.
There are arguments about whether lv2 is, but I see indication that it
can be, have a look at the invada plugins
(http://www.invadarecords.com/Downloads.php?ID=00000264) . They
were windows VST, then got ported to ladspa and then to LV2. The LV2
version even sports graphical GUIs.

The most professional orchestration people I know use linuxsampler,
have a look at openoctave.org.
