Allow a plugin parameter to be both an input & an output

Sometimes it may make sense for a plugin parameter to be both an input and an output, particularly when the plugin performs some sort of "in-place" mutation on that object. This is very common with image displays, for example. We should update the API from a boolean output toggle to a 3-way switch: input, output, or both.
