Yes, if you must work in old hosts then you are essentially stuck with
either not buffering or just assuming some very large maximum buffer
size and hoping you never get more data than that.

Audacity has supported LV2 for a while, but I am not sure how up to date
their implementation is.  Last I checked they were still using slv2,
which is incredibly old and much, much more of a pain to get working on
Windows compared to Lilv and friends.  Ask on the dev list?

Aside from that Mixbus is the only host that works on Windows that I
know of.  Jalv can be compiled on Windows, but that's only useful if
you're using Jack.
