Good idea, I have made a start: 
Michael, could you add the information about Lenya workflow? If anybody 
thinks a property/capability or implementation is missing, please add it 
to the table.

At Hippo we are interested in how Stefano's implementation using Flow 
would look like, and how Peter's implementation using XSLT would look 
like. Could you post a sample of how you expect the code would look like 
if the framework was already there? Thanks.

I won't be able to respond to messages the next two weeks fortunately. I 
will be on holiday in (hopefully) sunny Turkey. I'll be back April 5.
