  • Revert graceful failure to open wrapper [patch] (REGRESSION)

partially reverts svn r5724 by drobilla on 2015-09-12, as found needed to maintain backward compatibility (to 0.8.2) as much for non-wrappable UI types (eg. external UI, and still supported or in use by some hosts (eg. qtractor).

Trouble with this is errors are indistinguishable from a missing wrapper. How does the host know that it didn't actually get the container type it requested? Accidentally doing so would be a fatal error.

Note you can pass a NULL container_type_uri to get the UI without any wrapping. This seems like what a host using Suil in a non-wrap case should do to me.

as said this patch is about to maintain backward compatibility to suil <= 0.8.2 and eg. qtractor <= 0.7.0;

as far as i'm concerned, this patch is perfectly optional and may be just closed and/or graciously ignored :)

Okay, closing. Reverting this fix seems more problematic than not, and if the only reason is compatibility between a new library and old host, well, whatever.
