The CALF plugins are being looked at now.

I'm sorry. I shoulda been more specific. "GNOME-Specimen" the font
manager, has been removed. :) "Specimen" the sampler, I *think* wasn't
included because the case was made for another already included app. If
you wanna peruse this topic please do. I can't chime in since I don't
use synths but I'll let whatever happens in the community decide how
this goes. Whatever you guys think.

Others please chime in here as well.

I gotta also note (didn't really say it in the 1st post) that atm any
switches need to be to a app *already* in the repos. If there's
something out there that's not currently packaged it will have to be
marked for +1.
