Re: A proposal to restructure our top-level syntax

/ ht@inf.ed.ac.uk (Henry S. Thompson) was heard to say:
| Richard pointed out on yesterday's call that the type/name clash on
| p:pipeline arose, as have other issues, because of the schizophrenic
| nature of p:pipeline.  Bear with me, but that triggered a thought
| which I want to try to work through: we should use p:declare-step to
| declare all steps.  That is, not just spec-defined steps, and
| implementation-defined steps, but user-defined steps also.
| User-defined steps are the steps formerly known as named pipelines.

I'm a little surprised there's been no email discussion of this proposal.
Comments, anyone?

                                        Be seeing you,
