OK, do you need me to argue that we should allow pipelines declared in 
the same library to see each other?

It would be incredibly annoying and hard to maintain pipelines if the 
physical file structure of pipeline libraries were dictated by the 
logical structure of the pipeline processes (or, to a lesser extent, the 
nominal structure of the pipeline names).

Personally, I would be happy to drop the constraint that atomic step 
types must be defined before pipelines. The processor can still report 
errors when it finds atomic step types that are used without being 
defined, just has to wait until it's read everything to do so.
