To make it more clear. Workflows which I described (and in general) are
composed from states.
In our case those states might coresponds to another workflows (e.g.
"release" workflow will need to execute "build" workflow) or to plugin
I wanted to stay abstain from the problem what actually happens in given
node of the tree (e.g this is leaf or not, to which (if to any) plugin it is
For maven core it might ve simple -  when any node gets vistied stack of
currently visible dependecies might be changed.
So project.getDependecies() (we might add another method in this class or in
other  class) will return different list depending on the
current location in the three which is defined by the workflow.
