As long as Jo is asking this, I might as well ask further (though I admit I
have made no effort to figure this out on my own):

Jo is talking about doing non-realtime work, including doing analysis tasks
on one file, using that information to guide a synthesis process on another
file, the output of which might be processed by other instruments and
combined together... The type of stuff one does with (with-sound) in CLM. To
what degree does it makes sense to try to do that kind of approach within
the SND framework?
