Executing cwlrunner from Taverna (configured with a CWL workflow rather than a CWL tool) could be an interesting thing - that would be a way to include a CWL workflow as a nested workflow in Taverna.
The CWL workflow can be added directly to the Workflow Bundle as-is and extracted to a temporary folder before running cwl-runner.
This would also be an intermediate approach towards TAVERNA-878 as you can execute any cwl tool by generating a one-step cwl workflow and run cwlrunner.
However then the user would need to have cwlrunner AND Taverna installed, so it would be more of an intermediate solution.
