Or to either of that - that's what we have multiple attachments for.
Yes, I've thought about this.
The problem is that the whole ugen API assumes that the
whole device can be controlled. We could either filter
the ugen calls to allow only access to interfaces not claimed
by a real driver, or replace the API completely.
Before giving a statement, i'd like to check how other
OSes deal with this. Inventing a new API wouldn't make sense.
