Flowscript is what comes to mind at first. I think we have already 
(thanks to Antonio) most of what is needed, except continuations. But 
as far as the sitemap is concerned, I'm not that fond of Groovy to 
really push it as *the* alternative to XML. It's just something that is 
available now to experiment new ideas without having to do a BDUF(1) or 
write a lot of code. Don't get so focused on the pros and cons of 
Groovy that you fail to see the forest instead of the trees ;-).
