automation is never saved via a plugin on any platform, its always host
side. AFAIK, VST plugins can save state just like LADSPA, unless they
are flagged as wanting to use "chunks", which are a way of the plugin
saving its own settings in an opaque way. IIRC, Ambience is one such
plugin. I have not written code to support this, although its not really
hard to do.
