Since the wine people changed the API x times during
2003, and both fst and dssi-vst popped up as alternatives,
I didn't see any reason to bother with it anymore.

But now that dssi-vst finally got support for LADSPA,
there should be _absolutely_ no reason to talk about
that software anymore. :-)

It got supported in May this year. Maybe Chris
forgot to announce it?
