Final Cut Pro X with Lightroom. Yes, you could but NOW with 10.3 you can't

On 11 June, I posted the method I have been using to import photographs directly from Lightroom into Final Cut Pro X. But with the upgrade to FCPX 10.3 that cannot be done. I can find no way to add a folder of jpgs to the Photos and Audio Sidebar. From Apple Photos yes, Aperture yes but nothing non-Apple. I have asked on the Apple FCPX forum if anybody has worked out how to do it but the query has received no replies.

I am again stuck with going through the import process from, say, that Published Smart Folder created from Lightroom.

Will there be sufficient noise from users for Apple to realise what functionality they have removed?
