Eye candy is as well a other side of the strip, and I wouldn't put it 
such below then a analyzer plug.
If LV2 ever would be a competitor to other plugin standards (and I 
really hope it will), we need a better way to redraw the UI. Be it for 
eye candy, for analyze, or for user feedback.
At minimum as a plug-in developer I need to know the UI refresh rate, 
otherwise any calculation to give users a feedback running into a hole. 
And it didn't differ here if it be just a eye-candy or the calculation 
of a fallback parameter from a simple VU meter.
