An important distinction to make here: There is nothing
Ardour-specific about your LADSPA plugins. Many applications
can and do use those plugins. So what you call "default
Ardour installation" would really be called "default Audio
workstation installation". I'm nitpicking because it matters
when you run into issues.

No. Would be very useful too. I wonder whether LADSPA allows
for a plugin that housed a chain of n other plugins.
There is a workaround: You can set up templates with tracks or
busses full of "custom" sets of plugins.
Now if what Ron suggested a little while ago became real --
see ardour-dev "template components" -- session setup and
handling would become very powerful and fast.
I think that templates are worth every hour of thought and
consideration you can put into them, they're a user's key to
the awesome power of Ardour/JACK/LADSPA.
