I don't know of any that try to do this. But if a client would
want to, the most sensible thing to do in most cases would be
to return silence, i.e. clear the output buffers. A client 
could do this at the first thing in its process() callback.



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
