      Description

      It should be possible to select certain non-interesting processors, such as string constants and shims, and mark them as 'boring' (or more likely 'hide from diagram') so that they don't clutter the workflow diagram.

      We had this functionality in Taverna 1, but it only worked for edge processors like the String constant. It would be really great if this also worked for intermediate processors that acts as shims - in this case I picture the upstream processor would have a link to a very tiny circle (like the merge) and then a link out of the circle again - see attached sketch.

      It could be set as an annotation that a processor is hidden. (similar annotations could be used to store the expansion state of nested workflow, and if ports of a processor are to be shown)

      Set as Post 2.1.0 as it's not a blocker.
