Aw, come on. The problem was only mentioned, but the question was pretty
specific: could you comment on/recommend an open source python workflow 
engine/module (implied: to go with a web app). Sharepoint doesn't match 
the description. I think one could assume that if I'm asking about wheels, 
I need a pointer to a wheel shop, and I'm not instead making a disguised 
request for people to analyze my problem for me.
