David: you was totally right. Trying to do just a "simple regenerating 
of all plugins", I understand your suggestions reasons.

Do you think that is safer to keep that out of the release? For now I 
prefer to release as is (and maybe the same for the ladspa compiled 
networks), like a workaround... Is not totally safe, but the faust 
reloader works for the user, and I could continue this after the release 
and focus my work on subnetworks.

BTW, I apologize for break up the loading of clam plugins on the SVN for 
a few hours. :-/
