I think a timeout with a specified default is a great idea:-)

Chaining is a great idea also. It could be specified with a 1,2,3,4,5
option line with 1 being first and 5 being last. My question about this is
with chaining, how is bayou and or the payload going to know when to break
and move on to the next payload?? Will we have to modify all of the
payloads to break and return to bayou on a error or interactive message?
Something like "This payload is not able to complete sucessfully. Would you
like to return to bayou and run your next choosen payload[Y/n]?"

Just a thought.
