I'm just trying to get clarification and more detail on what you mean here,
since I'm working on a prototype right now.  Maybe this is already clear to
you, but just wanted to make sure...

In the general case, a ScriptProcessorNode has *both* input and output data and
acts as a signal processor.  In order to achieve zero latency, the buffer size
has to be 128, the same as the rest of the native nodes.  If this were not the
case, then the .onaudioprocess handler could not be called until enough input
samples (>128) were buffered (for the .inputBuffer attribute of the
AudioProcessingEvent), thus introducing a latency.
