      creating a LADSPA_Descriptor for a caps plugin via a C++ template,
      saves us a virtual function call compared to the usual method used
      for C++ plugins in a C context.

      Descriptor<P> expects P to declare some common methods, like init(),
      activate() etc, plus a static port_info[] and LADSPA_Data * ports[]
      and of course 'adding_gain'.
      maintaining both port_info[] and ports[] is a bit of a bitch, but,
      hey, "you only do it once (tm)" .. and then you do it over and over
      again. particularly bothersome is also the necessary unrolling of our
      PortInfo array to fit into LADSPA_Descriptor's inconsequential way of 
      port data structuring, which results in quite a bit of memory holding 
      duplicated data. oh well.
