Ok, perhaps I should look more carefully at the logicsheets then. Is it possible
to combine the logicsheets in a way that the "result" of one logicsheet is processed
by another one? E.g. having the SQLTransformer and the I18nTransformer. The SQLTransformer
fetches data from the database (with information for more than one language) and the
I18nTransformer filters this result for the correct language. Is this possible with
logicsheets? (I know that this example is a bit lame - but in lack of time its the first
which came in mind).
