I'm curious to know how it compares to jBpm, OpenSymphony's OSWorkFlow 
and ObjectWeb's Enhydra Shark. jBpm uses the ASL, OSWorkFlow uses the 
ASL and Shark uses the LGPL. I believe each one of these has different 
features than the other. I'd like to see a features matrix drawn up on 
all four engines by someone who knows workflow better than me.
