Good, we finally hit the problem.

Yes, this thread is about flowmaps.

Ovidiu showed us flowmaps written with a java syntax as examples of the
suggested idea of using programmatic logic and continuations. Can't
remember what message is was but I personally did see the real need for
a programming language.

Anyway, I believe it's totally pointless to argue about syntax before
the semantics are available, so I'd suggest not to limit creativity with
syntax limitations at this point, but see the semantical results.

At the end, when the functionality is there, we'll discuss about what
syntax is best, ok?
