one thing tough...
from this thread i'm gathering there seems to be the need as well of clearer 
distinction between applications and workspace, making also the applications 
to e able to be small, standalone, few dependencies entities.
while an integrated workflow concept ties together way furtner applications 
and workspace, and applications between each other (maybe at the point you 
don't have a very defined concept of "application" anymore)

they are both desiderable, but they seems quite in contrast each other.
I'm sure I'm hitting a false dichotomy there, but not seeing a clear solution. 
does anybody does?
