Re: [sc-dev] output spec

note that most things can respond as to their .rate

simplenumber: \scalar
ugen \control or \audio

and many things can respond as to their numChannels

an Instrument has to value its function (build the ugenGraph)
in order for it to know what it is going to produce as an output.

but that also depends on its inputs (if an audio input was
stereo for example a simple RLPF will be a stereo out).

for many output patchings, that's all that is required,
and that's all that an OutputSpec expresses right now.

but in a more sophisticated thing-builder / gui world,
knowing the precise possible range of an output would be
very useful.
