Either way, it seems like suggested addition of FlowSelector will 
overshadow ScriptAction, but will not completely replace it because 
ScriptAction supports more than just Javascript (and works through BSF), 
which partly is more of an academic difference (does anybody really uses 
other scripting languages beside Javascript?) Also, addition of 
FlowSelector will pave a way to:

  * FlowMatcher
  * FlowAction
  * FlowGenerator (replacement for ScriptGenerator)

And IIRC suggestion of adding action behavior to flow was critisized 
(vote thread [1], don't remember discussion thread)
