I'd make a real bypass. 

You can save some CPU cycles, if you bypass it completly using for
example a subpatch and [switch~]. Sending 0/1 to [switch~] inside a
subpatch will dis/enable this subpatch. You could also add a little
[$1 10(---[line~] ramp and delay the message to switch~ by 10msec to
avoid clicks.

Depending on your patch in  granular synthesis the saved CPU cycles
can add up quite a bit and allow more grains.
