Get data from various sources including search and flow it through a processing - report generation pipeline.

This is all a work in progress and wont be useful for some time. Searchflow is similar in intent to Yahoo Pipes but with more geeky blocks, and will be released with a nice open license when its near completion. I am planning to have a private version for my own use that will allow arbitrary code blocks for various languages (Perl, Python).

The interface below submits to the server as a normal form using POST but uses javascript (modified version of JSGraphIt) to render the graphical layout to express the hidden connectivity input fields.
