[gmpi] my first ideas

this being my first post here, I have two aspects derived from 
AudioUnits standard that I'd like to put in the pot:

1.) Seperation of Process and GUI

If user interface and process are different things/applications from 
the beginning, it is easier to customize access to the process for 
certain needs. A PlugIn could offer more than one view (newbie/expert) 
or a collection of plugs could be controlled by the same view (a 
generic user interface with company-typic layout). A PlugIn could also 
be easier controlled in uncommon environments like games, video editing 
software if it doesn't feel naked without its gui.

This implicitly requires a flexible parameter handling and notification 

2.) Timestamp for any kind of host-plugin notification

Automation data, parameter setting, Midi events should all be 
timestamped. Sample accuracy will do.
