libvamp update?

Not really a bug, but rather a request from the co-maintainer of my MacPorts "port" for Audacity.
The "local" libvamp copy is about 5 years old now. From what I understand there are no ABI changes in the current version; are there plans to update the included copy?

No plans at the moment.
Updating libraries carries a high risk of breaking things, so it has to be approached with caution. Also, developer's tend to prefer working on things that provide tangible benefits for users. Currently there is some work being done to update libsoxr and libflac.
