<sigh> It looks like it needs the patched version.

There was a fairly serious bug in the LCMS2 plugin API that meant there
was no way to attach a pointer to "user data" to the plugin context.

I'll need to talk to the engineer that found and addressed the problem
to find out the status of things with the canonical LCMS2 distribution.
I'll update when I've done that.
