As the course I teach has evolved, I've placed an increasing emphasis on the importance of the process flow diagram as a means to document the exact sequence by which the data have been read and transformed as well as the choices made for statistical analysis. Being able to reproduce all of the steps for an analysis is extremely important.
A nice addition to EG would be a tool to output the process flow both as a nice report (diagram and code) and in some stable XML schema that could be transformed into discipline appropriate metadata formats (like DDI).
