| <step name="mystep">
|   <input port="">some xml that came in</input>
|   <output port="">xml output of the step</input>
| </step>
| I see this as a useful debugging output on <p:pipeline/>, <p:group/>,
| try/catch, etc ...

I'm sorry, Jim, but I don't follow that example at all. I don't see *any*
log attribute or element there, so I'm not sure what you're getting at.

| well.

I don't think we want to say anything about the format, especially since
I don't want to attempt to solve the "how do you represent a sequence of
documents" question.
