Thanks for clearing that up. I'll certainly have a look at Pugl when I find
the time, and I also want to attend Filipe's DPF session at LAC. I surely
won't start rolling my own toolkits, though, that's just not my area of
interest. But if there are plugin-friendly solutions which are
well-supported, cross-platform and readily match Faust's requirements then
I don't see why we couldn't give them a go.

What worries me a bit is the lifetime of these specialist solutions,
though. You're complaining that Qt and GTK are moving targets, but that's
also an indication that they're still alive after all these years and
probably won't go away anytime soon. There's some value in that.
