it is true that we have not really decided whether or not "I/O" in the
most general sense should be possible via plugins. i personally do not
have much of an opinion about it, other than to note that i think it
will be rather hard to implement efficiently as part of a generic
plugin scheme. handling full-duplex I/O from a plugin that is called
only once per graph iteration is a bit tricky.

these are all handled by what has been written already. we don't care
what a plugin does in its GUI. editing is just one example of
something that the "non-audio" thread might make possible. all we care
about is what the inputs and outputs are.
