Well, as it stands right now, you always know when you encounter


whether it's a step, an ignored element, or an error. That's true
because pipelines and libraries require step declarations to occur
before subpipelines.

I think I agree that if we're going to allow pipelines declared in the
same library to see each other, we shouldn't make order significant.
