 Intents
 -------
 
-What is a directed graph?
+/What is a directed graph?/
+
+Several systems take the form of a directed graph:
 
 - dependencies
 - workflow

+

 Potential Uses
 --------------
 
 * dependency curation:
   - DEPS: Dependency Extraction and Processing System;
     http://deps.alioth.debian.org/ ,
     http://vasks.debian.org/projects/deps/
   - Extraction of Attribute Dependency Graph from Database Applications
     http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/articleDetails.jsp?arnumber=6130680&contentType=Conference+Publications
   - MAKAO, reverse engineering build systems :
     http://mcis.polymtl.ca/~bram/makao/
 
 * workflow construction, execution, and curation:
   - [TODO]
 
+* hybrid:  of course, since IRL
+  `workflow = DAG; dependencies = DAG => ...` ,
+  you can do some crazy things:
+  - actions: a class with method dependencies noted by decorators
+    (see actions.py)
