Subject Re: Resetting a pageflow instance
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2006 21:14:52 GMT
So my understanding of this is that there is a request for publically
exposing an API that would allow the current page flow stack to be blown
away so that the next request would generate new instances of the top most
page flow and all nesting would be lost.
