We discussed this briefly in the list March [1] and some of us arrived
at the conclusion that implicit inputs and outputs may not be a good
idea. In particular since we have components with no input and/or no
output, having implicit inputs/outputs makes it impossible without
knowing the components interface to see when steps are connected or if
they are correctly connected.
