Between a hack-based flow implementation driven by the need to factor 
flow out and a clean flow implementation with no possibility to factor 
it out, I would vote for the second.

If the flow, in order to fit nicely in the cocoon picture, needs to 
accomodate changes in the internal architecture, it meanst that is 
should not be optional.

on the other hand, if we can find an elegant solution to keep them 
separate I'm all for it, but elegant integration is, IMO, more important 
than potential separation.
