I think you hit the point here, I realize now I'm really thinking old
LADSPA way. In fact our first implementation was to support LADSPA, and
migrating to LV2 was hard. So, maybe what I'm trying to get here is the
certainty of things I used to have in LADSPA :-). This is just a
reflection, I don't know if this is a good or bad thing.

Yes, right now this suits our needs a lot, and as a general LV2 Python API
is not good yet, although this code being around might help other people.
Right now we're on a tight schedule for our product and releasing the whole
software under GPL is in our near roadmap, so this discussion will make
more sense for us soon, and then we can think in a more general tool.
