Getting calf backported to Xenial is not likely. I have had backports
waiting for sponsorship for years. Nobody seems interested in backports

We could provide it in a ppa, (probably also with a new metapackage),
and advise those interested in using the ppa that lmms will be removed.

Alternatively, we could go for an SRU (Stable Release Update) with the
"Conflicts: calf-ladspa", and the meta package update to drop lmms?
But this is probably harsh for lmms users with calf installed, and might
not get approved by the release team.
