I got flamed by Ben Neville (employee of C74) for suggesting such a thing on
a different list, after he touted MAX/MSP as the ONLY environment for
'creating your own plugins'.  My hypothesis is that C74 is looking to lock
people into a programming environment that is every bit as flexible as the
programming environment C74's programming environment was programmed in.
Kind of like a cultural toll-gate.  If you want to use C74's hyped
environment, you pay C74.  If you want to use generic C++ libraries to do
the same thing, go ahead, but you wont be buying into the particular
programming lifestyle C74 is pushing.
