doesn't the floating point engine handle this? To my understanding, the
problem arises at the moment, when we are exporting to a fixed bit width.

But in spite of this, such a function could be of some use, because on
complicated mixes with many effects, it can be really difficult to "debug"
which part generates the "too much output"
