Cool. How does it mess up debian policy? Does it just depend on the wrong 
things or is it deeper than that? It is very acceptable not to include 
Linux Sampler either as a dep or anything else. In fact if all we get is 
the rack that loads plugins and the plugin that loads other plugins, it is 
well worth it. Being able to load win-VSTs while nice, is not required for 
a first go if we can get it into the repos without.

It is only built for Artful and so while I could boot that up, I can't 
test it my normal workflow on 1604. Not that I use Carla or plugins that 
require it on a regular basis...  :)
