What I had in mind is either:

A) For there to be a "dummy" Nyquist effect (possibly called

parameters to the effect, though that would be an optional bonus
feature), then "chain.ny" could be manually edited to include
arbitrary Nyquist code for use in a processing chain.

B) An alternative approach might be to add the "Nyquist Prompt" to
Chains, in which the Nyquist Prompt text can be added as the
