44  [GLK:1] Add a clamp function, which takes three arguments; either  [GLK:1] Proper handling of stabilize method
 three scalars:  
   clamp(lo, hi, x)  = max(lo, min(hi, x))  
 or three vectors of the same size:  
   clamp(lo, hi, [x,y])  = [max(lo[0], min(hi[0], x)),  
                            max(lo[1], min(hi[1], y))]  
 This would be useful in many current Diderot programs.  
 One question: clamp(x, lo, hi) is the argument order used in OpenCL  
 and other places, but clamp(lo, hi, x) is much more consistent with  
 lerp(lo, hi, x), hence GLK's preference
