Half of a co-poster-presentation that Gavin and I did at SGML '96 on the 
subject can be found at <URL: 
http://crism.maden.org/consulting/pub/raw/sgml96.ppt > (PowerPoint, sorry - 
I was young and naÔve).  Gavin's half was to cover the pipeline in a little 
more detail, but he got sidetracked by a car accident on the way to Boston. )-:

This half of the presentation mostly deals with record-end handling, but 
touches on the pipeline idea.
