I am not sure to fully understand the issue and all the recent changes.
One idea of GWL is to have a functional workflow: the
multi-composition of functions/processes. And free inputs
are--say--the argument of this function. Therefore, if you have many
samples and you need to apply the same workflow, then you just apply
the function to each sample with --input. I mean it is my
understanding of the approach. Maybe I have wrong...
All the best,
