Another scenario:  Say you have a source node attached to a sub graph that
isn't currently attached to the destination.  If you start(0) the source
node, and then later on connect the subgraph to the destination, what
should happen?

Or say you don't connect the subgraph, but have an onended listener for the
source.  The listener should get fired, once the source is started?
