Please, people, consider what Ovidiu is doing on Schecoon and consider
the fact that if we get anymore 'flow logic' into the sitemap, we'll
have to support it forever (or at least, for years to come) while we
might well, one day, have the ability to have the sitemap include
description of the pipelines and resources and the flowmap the 'flow
logic' behind them (and possibly, deprecate the 'action' concept in the
sitemap).


I'm not saying that the sitemap is good for handling webapp flow logic,
actually I'm even more critical than you all on that (I still don't like
the action concept, even if I see its current usefulness).

But, please, *PLEASE*, don't add things now that we might need to
deprecate in 6 months.

Ovidiu, do you have any comment on this?
