Intersting stuff - thanks Reinhard and Steven for starting this and 
sharing it with us.

Finally I had time to have a *brief* look at it and I have some remarks :)

I think the pipeline api and sitemap api should be separate things. So 
the invocation should rather be in the pipeline api as the base of 
executing pipelines. We could than split this into two modules.

I'm not sure if actions belong to the pipeline api; i think they are 
rather sitemap specific. All they do wrt to the pipeline is to change 
the invocation perhaps. So this could also be done before starting the 
pipeline and get the action stuff out of the pipeline api.

The classes should be put into different packages: we should separate 
between the pure api, helper classes and implementations. This makes it 
easier to use the stuff in an osgi environment.

Ok, final comment for today, the idea of abstracting the consumer and 
the producer seems appealing. It's like the javax.xml stuff (Result, 
Source); the javax.xml stuff has the advantage that the implementation 
knows which results and sources are possible: there are only a handfull 
of subsclasses; adding own results or sources simply is not supported.
I fear we will have to follow the same path (which might not be bad).
