I don't disagree that restarting the filter to change a parameter sucks
(and if we wanted to do it that way, then why bother with all the filter
But I don't really agree that fitler settings should always take
immediate effects either. If you need to change more than one parameter,
and you sometimes do, then applying the change straight away will result
in a glitch at best, and a crash at worst (if the intermediate set of
parameters is invalid).
