:-) I'll give the stuff a bit more time to breed and a bit more 'food' to
swallow and then see what comes out.

I see the basic shape of the picture but it's only a sketch of MTRT (more
than random thoughts ;-).

I think apart from being easily digested via Configuration's et al. there's
no strong reason to being forced to that 'syntax' and I surely don't think
of it as a sin (what's that? ;-). and the simple and powerful structure of
the pipelines makes a minimal syntax possible;

when you declare a generator pipeline, the first component has to be a
generator and the remaining (if any) have to be transformers. the same
principle also for the other pipeline types. so you end up with simple
names, as in the example I gave.

yeah, we'll see what comes out. but since 'ein bild sagt mehr als tausend
worte' I'll try to come back showing a picture instead of letting floods of
words break open.
