I did some digging around existing plugin solutions for fluidsynth and 
other synths on Linux and so far had no luck. pluginhost~ segfaults as 
soon as it is loaded (help patch does). Removing ":hexter" from the 
[pluginhost~ hexter.so:hexter 2] fixes this but one cannot open any of 
the guis (they all either do not do anything or eventually crash pd. The 
old fluid~ is gone, nowhere to be found, so is dssi~. It is possible 
that this problem stems from some weird configuration on my system but 
before I try digging in that direction, just wanted to see what everyone 
else's thoughts were on this one. The problem btw manifests both on 
local build of pd-extended and pd-l2ork. Not sure about vanilla...
