Which is strange. Because

1. In-place makes sense only when there is a simple one-to-one
relation of inputs and outputs, and

2. If a host provides a click-free in/out for the plugin (and
that is not a luxury) it has to keep a copy of the input anyway.

Probably yes, but I'm reluctant of continuing to use an app that
includes yet one more (for me) useless feature (midi) with all the
complexity an risks that brings. At least for work where any form
of failure means irrecoverable loss. It doesn't matter if the 
problem is the result of a bug, or of the operator being required
to pay attention to unused features only to avoid having them
interfere by accident.



There are three of them, and Alleline.
