then lets ask the question: who is running chuck on linux on a non-x86 

There are much more people working on windows and OSX than on Linux 
(yes, there are PPC VST plugins).

I have nothing against LADSPA support and i guess it's much simpler to 
add LADSPA support on Linux than VST on Windows or OSX. LADSPA is a very 
simple interface.

Question of importance is the question of which plugins you want to use. 
If you want to use commercial stuff, there is no way around VST (or 
Audio Units), until we have GMPI in a few years.
