application does this:

do step A (takes some time)
do step B (takes even longer)
do step C (not that long)

each step is decently independent of the previous.  I plan to have A, B and C
implemented as separate modules (perhaps several for each step) and load each
as I need them.

Not every run of the program will reach all three, but most will.

It is possible for each step to take as long as a day or two (it could be given
a thousand files to munge).
