Point taken. This is equally true of Python, though, and it is likewise not
clear to me whether a Python program written by me, linking to a binary
library built with VST SDK 2.4 (distributed by a VST2-licensed developer),
would be subject to their decrees. I mean, you are allowed to continue to
publish programs made with 2.4, but the vstplugin~ extern is not a program.
And Pd the program does not use the VST standard, only the program I would
write with it.
