Of course, these are all just LADSPA plugins, no different than the
very ones you probably have installed in linux, so they all show up
together.  However, on OSX we included a VST bridge (ripped from
audacity) that will actually make any VST plugins installed on your
system show up as LADSPAs too.  You won't be able to use their GUIs,
but will get normal ardour generic ones.

Yes, I included the documentation for both of these plugin sets in the
.zip file, they should show up wherever you unzipped the package, and
describe what plugins are included (and how to use 'em).  But I know
that Mark and documentation don't mix :)

I'd like to know more about this, email privately or jump on IRC. 
Seems like a few weeks ago you were doing okay...

Sounds like a cool idea...
