LADSPA plugin hosting code still in Juce 6?

Why does the Juce plugin hosting code still support LADSPA plugins?

These files still exist in the Juce 6 repo :

modules\juce_audio_processors\format_types\juce_LADSPAPluginFormat.h
modules\juce_audio_processors\format_types\juce_LADSPAPluginFormat.cpp

What is the history behind these? Surely no user of Juce 6 could require that there is still LADSPA plugin hosting support? Why has there ever been LADSPA plugin hosting support in Juce, to begin with, but no way to build LADSPA plugins? I don’t really care that those files are in the repo, I am mainly curious.

I wouldn’t be so sure. Maybe someone use LADSPA plugins in Tracktion projects, for example.
