Apples is Marc's try at creating an implementation of the "generalized
flow" ideas he's been spreading the last couple of weeks.

Basically it is the same as flowscript, but your flows are written in
Java and lack continuations. So you have to implement your own logic for
figuring out the current state each time you get a request entering your
"apple".

What you do get for free (compared to e.g. using actions) is an
interaction-based storage area (namely the instance variables in your
apple), which is way better and easier than using the session to store
parameters for a certain flow. It also allows you to pass data to the
view layer in a flowscript-compatible way, and the integration with the
sitemap is nicer.

For the actual code see
