This is a suggestion about usability, not a bug.  It would be very nice to be
able to save a workflow that contains the basic components of a "typical"
analysis.  For example, I find that I almost always need an SDF director, an
RExpression actor, an ImageJ actor, and a text display actor.  I noticed on the
File menu that the "New Workflow" has a submenu.  How hard would it be to allow
users to save a typical analysis design as a template and add it to this
submenu? (in the meantime, I'll make a "template.xml" with these components,
open it, save as "newfile.xml" and keep on truckin')

Thank you!
