An S4 representation of the Command design pattern. The Operation class is a simple implementation using closures and supports forward and reverse (undo) evaluation. The more complicated Protocol framework represents each type of command (or analytical protocol) by a formal S4 class. Commands may be grouped and consecutively executed using the Pipeline class. Example use cases include logging, do/undo, analysis pipelines, GUI actions, parallel processing, etc.
