Right now Galaxy can implicitly create collections by running a tool
that takes in a single input or a paired dataset over say a list of
inputs or a list of paired inputs but tools cannot explicitly create
dataset collections. I think Galaxy's current capabilities add a lot
of useful functionality - but say tools that take a big input and
split it into an arbitrary number of pieces or tools that
normalize/summarize N inputs simultaneously and produce N outputs
cannot be represented. A few people made some progress on this at the
recent GCC Hackathon (https://trello.com/c/ndVQmt3G) and a lot more
people have made it clear that it is an important feature.
