Norm's new step basically works for me--checking a URI for change is
fine. I need to have my pipeline wait while the user updates and saves
an XForm so the URI check is simply to see if the XForm has managed to
save a new document. With an XPath and a condition, I'm not sure what to
check the XPath against. It wouldn't work to look at the updated
instance in the XForm itself, I suspect.

very nice,

reminds me of evolution of tasks in Ant * someone would impl one
variety of a task then we would get

wait-for-input, wait-for-some-condition, wait-for-*

all with different signatures, inputs, outputs, etc*

I wonder if we could consider an alternate route * more like
cx:depends-on attribute eg. cx:wait-on and use the power of xpath to
be our language for defining condition to wait for ? Its a half baked
idea but architecturally I like it better then having yet another
