Maybe, time will show. But, to be honest, I prefer a insignificant 
corner were I've the freedom to do what I like, over a busy highway, 
were I've to look all the time to left and right, in order to don't get 
drooped down.

I, in opposite didn't think it's a mistake to use C++ or GTK(mm), a 
mistake will be to use instance access or, even worse, mix GUI and DSP 
code, so that a host is required to use the GUI provided by the plugin.
The separation of GUI and DSP code is the best (I think) we have in the 
LV2 specs.
