Incremental development of distributed systems

Set up the causal chain first.  Make "something" go from input to
output, and gradually fill in the gaps.  It's important to have the
general picture of the data flow and data dependencies implemented,
even if it has many many missing features.

It's much easier to keep a system running than it is to bring it up,
so bring it up when it is still simple.
