the alternative is that we do it at the HDL level.  create the series of
"modules" ehich result in separate actual VST files, link_add0_sub0_out0.vst

also tedious :)

that would be extremely cool.

it will have many uses, in combination with the netlist subset finder we can
have much better control over placement, without complicating the HDL.
