It's great, but the fact that you do real time job as well splits
applications in two : the one that need it and teh one that must not have
it. If I have to iterate on a folder and apply something to each element in
the folder and then save it, I would use a for loop with a sub worflow with
the load, process and save boxes inside the for loop box, not outside.

Now, I think that if an input is connected to something, the associated
editor should not be displayed.

But great job, I didn't create such an application that works that well even
if I started a long time ago ;)

Hearing that Enthought is working on something similar,
> I'm still very curious to see their concept.

Yes, their block_canvas will be a huge competitor with the support of the
Traits library for modifying and/or displaying variables. For what I saw, it
will beat Vision hands down (their workflow is a Python script directly, so
adding new functions is generally straightforward).
