The rate at which [line] outputs an update of the current value. I'd
probably call the second argument "grain period" as "grain rate"
implies a frequency.

I'm not sure I fully understand what your asking. Upon receiving a two-
float list, [line] starts sending out messages at the given rate. The
time period between the message reflects the second argument, except
for the time period between the second to last and last message where
the period might be shorter so that the sum of all grains equals the
ramp time given.
