[ardour-users] shall we wait for VST or go with libfst?

Paul, I was planning on rebuilding my audio box to go with Linux and Ardour 
this weekend… however, I already own lots of VSTi’s I have purchased. I was 
planning to try out the libfst, but you just suggested on the email list to 
wait to you have that built in. I don’t mean to be rude or to rush you, but 
any idea on a timeline that VST may be built in? so I can gauge weather or 
not to mess with the fstlib stuff or not. (by the way from everything I have 
read and seen, Ardour looks amazing).
Thanks, Brendan
