as i just mentioned, i don't think we care what the plugin does. it
can do visualization, make candy based on the incoming audio signal,
control a 3D polystyrene robot sculptor or whatever. from the
perspective of the host, its a chunk of code that the host calls at
the appropriate times, has zero or more inputs and zero or more
outputs and obeys general RT scheduling:

        cycles spent in plugin = (A * nframes) + B

where A and B are constants.
