  Just to throw some info on this truly exciting idea for Gimp, I ask

'glyphs'. It even has a visual editor to construct dataflows, called

  It's a pity, Khoros used to be free (in the beer sense, anyway), but
now you have to pay for it. Its website is rather scarce of

  From what I remember from an early version that I used at
