If we allow the UA to set the ScriptProcessorNode buffer size, we can potentially use larger ScriptProcessorNode buffer sizes. For example, if there's one ScriptProcessorNode in the graph and it's not in a cycle, we can process N blocks for all the nodes before the ScriptProcessorNode, run the ScriptProcessorNode with a buffer of N*128 samples, and then process N blocks for all the nodes after the ScriptProcessorNode.

BTW, no matter how we resolve the block size issue, there's a quite severe problem we need to address: what happens if the ScriptProcessorNode's event handler modifies the audio graph. This isn't a big problem when the event handler is running asynchronously (the current situation), but it becomes a huge problem when we're effectively running it synchronously.
