I'm the cwiid maintainer... probably will update the build to include
the .pc because that seems to be "the way of the future".

API changes. I'm under the impression that plugins built against lilv
won't be backwards-compatible with apps using lv2. But that's based
on stuff I looked at last year and can't remember details of now, so I
might be wrong.
