If you allow multiple connections between two nodes*, then you'll have to
provide an identifier for that connection, and enable the disconnect() to take
that identifier (and require developers to hang on to that identifier).  Or,
said another way - if connect() always adds another connection, even if it
already exists, then what does disconnect() do, and how do you know when you
are really disconnected?  It seems like enabling multiple connections would
complexify the connect/disconnect part of the API significantly.

If there's a scenario for making multiple connections between two nodes*, I'm
open to hearing it; I just couldn't think of any.  I would presume it would
just effectively double the gain, which of course is easy to do in other ways.

*Technically, these should both read "the same input/output pair of two nodes."
 Of course you can make connections between different i/o pairs.
