/ Richard Tobin <richard@inf.ed.ac.uk> was heard to say:
| And the simplifying convention would be that if a <step> has no
| <input> child then its input is the first output of the lexically
| preceding step, and that inputs and outputs need not be named unless
| the names are needed (the pipeline and the diff step use this
| simplification for their output).

So is the following generalization sufficient?

Where I had one anonymous infoset, you propose a list of anonymous
infosets. Each step consumes all of them (perhaps by ignoring some of
them) and produces zero or more.

That's slightly more complex, but amounts to just stdin/stdout in the
common case.

You also have "local names" which I'm on the fence about, but I think
that's a seperable issue.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
