Anyone remember Morrison's "Flow Based Programming" (Van Nostrum Reinhold,
1994)?  Fascinating stuff, which apparently he used very successfully at
IBM.  Sort of a cross between recursively structured streams, pipes,
potential parallel processing, and pull processes.  It ought be be well
suited to markup processing.  I think there are still a few copies of the
book to be found (maybe used).
