/ Richard Tobin <richard@inf.ed.ac.uk> was heard to say:
| Just an editorial point:
| I find the description of compound steps in 2.1 rather unclear.  What
| are the contained steps of a p:choose?  Are p:when and p:otherwise
| steps, or just syntax?  If the former, then 2.1 implies that they form
| a subpipeline, when in fact each of them is a subpipeline.  If the
| latter, then p:choose doesn't have any contained steps, because the
| steps don't "occur directly" within p:choose.

I changed compound step to say simply that it must contain one or more
subpipelines. Maybe that's better?
