Don't at least two of these three conflict? At least jack and everything
jack2, not sure about jack2 and jack2-dbus.

Including the LADSPA and LV2 plugins sounds like a good idea, since they
imensely enhance and sometimes enable certain processes in the pro-audio

Not sure, how difficult it is to build groups, but when I read the list,
I thought that the sound generators/synthesizers don't really belong
into the core pro-audio field. Not sure how others see this. I'd
personally go looking for an extra group/bundle there, something like
synth or pro-audio-synth. I suppose one could argue the same thing about
any plugin that doesn't fulfill the absolute core-functionalities, like
EQ, compressor and perhaps reverb/delay, to fork them out into an
plugin-extra, but they usually don't take that much space on a drive.

As for the list of packages, if Yoshimi goes into community then it's a
definite candidate, in my opinion.

Best wishes and thanks for the good work,
