[Ardour-Dev] State of VST3 support (and u-he Repro)

The licensing issues are still a bit problematic. Steinberg tried to make
it available in a GPL compatible way, but I think there are still some
cloudy areas. For VST2, we use vestige headers to workaround the
incompatible licensing. VST3 licensing is better, but not 100%.

Robin may have a different or more accurate story.
