Subject: RE: [wsbpel] Issue 44 - Summary so far.

Hum... maybe I shouldn't have created Issue 52 and instead should have kept
it part of Issue 44? I thought Issue 44 would just address the issue of
removing the portType and that issue 52 would address how to deal with
calling yourself. Because, given your summary below, clearly 52
(http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/wsbpel/200308/msg00158.html) should be
a 3rd option.
