I'd encourage people to work on making the workflow (and thus the
"next action") customizable.  We could have several popular workflows
for the user to choose, for example.  We could even have a facility
whereby the user specifies the sequence of the actions in her

I think "C-x v v" is a powerful concept, and if done right, is a great
time saver, and also prevents errors.  We shouldn't give up on that so
