The newCasProduced method needs to be added to the WhiteboardFlow
class, not that WhiteboardFlowController class.  Otherwise it looks
like what you are doing is right.

The idea behind this is that the Flow of the new CAS might be related
to the Flow of its "parent" CAS (the one that was input to the CAS

You are right though that the documentation on this could be better.
