A number of monks have said kind things about Flow-based programming
(FBP), which is near and dear to my heart. I am a very new novice in the Monastery, and am not yet a Perl user (blush), but I thought I would ask for feedback on what direction we should take FBP.

PS I went to an English public school, so I do have some monastic experience...
