Mark,

Not to quibble, but (IMHO) that's one of the main points of declarative
systems. The developers declares the dependencies and the system is
responsible to figuring out how to make it happen correctly. Sure, it's a
little inside-out from a structural point of view, but it makes it easier to
maintain large, complex systems because each node is as independent as it
could be.

Just one developers opinion,

- Paul Philion
