/ Alex Milowski <alex@milowski.org> was heard to say:
| Name: [p:]identity
|
| Description:
|
| The identity construct makes a verbatim copy of its input available on its
| output.
|
| Inputs:
|
|   source:  A sequence of documents.
|      The input to copy to the output.
|
| Outputs:
|
|   result:  A sequence of documents.
|      A copy of the input to the 'source' input port.

We decided not to have implicit processing of sequences. I think the
identity component should take a single document, not a sequence.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
