This is a nifty topic, well worth inclusion in the book, IMHO.

I have built processing networks out of scripts and YAML files,
using generated make files to keep the outputs in sync with the
inputs.  In a CouchDB-based system, daemons (ie, bots) could be
set up to move the state of the files forward.  Whether a file
gets modified (or simply used as input) depends on the design.
