Cool, the collection of algorithms is growing :-)
This is again a different approach. The test signal is a pulse and the
patch measures time between sending and receiving the click. The cool
thing is it's done in a way that doesn't need any "magic" objects like
However, it's still not the one I was describing earlier.
