What I'm getting at, of course, is that if you have a very large arbitrary
cycle of nodes, containing a single DelayNode which delays by a single
sample, then you need to iterate over all the nodes in the cycle producing
one output sample per node, once per sample. That will require alternative
code paths to the normal, more efficient paths that use SIMD to process
multiple samples per node.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
