Oh, we did not know... We chose the name "pipe" because the part which
runs on the GPU based on CUDA, for example, is organized more in a
pipeline structure than in a graph-structure.
Right now seems to be a good time to change the name to something else
since we didn't release it to the public so far.
What would you prefer? We suggest: osgGPP (general purpose processing)
It could also be the base for OpenCL. What do you think?

Done - I already posted it to the osg-submissions list.
