Sorry, it was in fact Vision and Viper I saw in the past as well.
The idea is great but the application, IMHO, is not quite optimal :
- even for the tutorial, the rotate bloc should have two inputs, the image
and the rotation angle (this last factor could be given by the result of
another algorithm)
- what about multithreading in this model ?
- what about flow control ? (which is really a huge issue that is lacking in
ITK for instance)
- is there a way to create a bunch of blocks easily ?

All this has consequences on the interface. Besides, it would be very great
to use Traits as input and output blocks.
