* \brief The simple interface to running a flowgraph.

* Calls start() then wait(). Used to run a flowgraph that will
* stop on its own, or when another thread will call stop().
*
* \param max_noutput_items the maximum number of output items
* allowed for any block in the flowgraph. This passes through to
* the start function; see that function for more details.

* Start the contained flowgraph. Creates one or more threads to
* execute the flow graph. Returns to the caller once the threads
* are created. Calling start() on a top_block that is already
* started IS an error.
*
* \param max_noutput_items the maximum number of output items
* allowed for any block in the flowgraph; the noutput_items can
* always be less than this, but this will cap it as a
* maximum. Use this to adjust the maximum latency a flowgraph can
