           Summary: Actor names to change/actors to remove from application
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0beta3
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: actors
        AssignedTo: berkley at nceas.ucsb.edu
        ReportedBy: kma500 at hotmail.com
         QAContact: kepler-dev at ecoinformatics.org

I'm opening a bug to keep track of notes about some actors that have come up as
I've gone through the actor docs. 

Names to change:
GetPoint should be named GetMineralCompositionPoint 
Get2DPoint should be named GetMineralComposition2DPoint 

Actors to remove:
Interpolate: (per efrat) I think we can omit the Interpolate actor. It's not
used in any used workflow and it's not fully implemented (only inverse distance
is available) and very complex to use with all the parameters. I'm using other
interpolation algorithms in workflows using web services. We can leave the
actor in the distribution but probably omit it from the search.

InvokeService: (per efrat) The InvokeService actor can definitely be omitted,
it's a wrapping of WorkflowExecute to use within a workflow, but Ptolemy also
provides an actor to execute a whole workflow. 

PortLineReader: this actor, util.LineReader, is being removed
FTPClient: This actor may not currently work. Unclear what plan for it is.
