Different granularities.

The "workflow script" is a *plan* for a specific *process execution*
like "Move files", *controlled* by an agent "Script runner".

On a different level, the "script runner" itself might also be a
*process execution*, which uses the "workflow script" as an input. In
this case the script runner is controlled by the user who started it
in the terminal, and uses the "/bin/bash" binary as a plan.

You might or might not express this in two different accounts. I don't
see any reason why it couldn't be done in the same account, except it
gets messy.
