I've essentially asked the same question of the list in the past and gotten no 
real response.

I have the same interest, but from a workflow perspective.

* A module that allows me to select multiple datafiles (say fastq files)
* Then pass each data file to a separate instance of a workflow that runs 
tophat and cufflinks
* then another module that takes the final outputs of each of the workflow runs 
and sends them to a final module that merges results.

I am attempting to implement something like this using the API, though the API 
is still pretty green from my perspective.

I think functionality like this built into the workflow editor would be a great
