Hello TUs

I would like to bring slv2 [1] and google-gadgets [2] to [community] but as
it is now, the latter can be used by extra/kde and the former (which also
would bring in lv2 as a dep) by extra/ardour. Either (A) a core packager
adopts them (along with deps) or (B) I go ahead and maintain them in

[1] http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=14545
[2] http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=17378

* slv2 is a library for host apps to make use of the lv2 plug-in standard
and specs - http://drobilla.net/software/slv2/
* lv2 is a successor to ladspa and is considered pretty stable as of today
- http://lv2plug.in/
* google-gadgets is a standalone widget host from Google -
* google-gadgets can also integrate into Plasma -
