What are the issues? It seems that since the Ardour ecosystem depends on 
a broad selection of available LV2 plugins, a better approach would be 
to point out the problems and help fix them. Or is upstream not responsive?

FWIW, I've used a few calf plugins for a long time (several years) 
without any problems, usually the compressors and reverb, for smaller 
jobs. The calf compressor GUI in particular is very nice for teaching.

All best,
