Mmh, how could you (form the outside) connect the output to the
induvidual managed wires?
Let's say I from one of the values in the output "b" I decide I want to
delete the corresponding wire? I need to know the key "k". OK, I could
encode "k" in the output but should I then not explicitly return "k"
with it?
