I think the ChubGraph just encapsulates a set of UGens.

ChuGins should be about as fast as UGens. Exactly how fast that is
will -of course- depend on the programmer and the compiler.
How much faster a more involved GhuGin will be than a series of more
simple UGens performing the same task will depend on how much this
task can be simplified when we put it in a single object. I'd only do
this is situations where performance is really critical or where you
anticipate you'll re-use a given technique a lot.

Interestingly it turned out that ChuGins can out-perform regular
UGens; Caspar's interpolating delay seems to out-perform the most
similar UGen. How that is possible, considering that Caspar is using
more high quality interpolation is still a bit unclear.
