Provide data dependency graph view in provenance browser
The provenance browser currently provides four views of a workflow run: the raw trace file, the "Collection History", an invocation dependency graph, and a "Dependency History" graph. The latter is a hybrid of the invocation dependencies and the data dependencies. What we don't have is a pure data dependency graph.
As an example, compare the data dependency graph (http://daks.ucdavis.edu/~sbowers/prov/pq1.gif) for the COMAD implementation of the 1st provenance challenge (http://twiki.ipaw.info/bin/view/Challenge/DAKS) with the dependency history view provided by the provenance browser (attached). I'd like to be able to view the first kind of graph in the provenance browser as well.

This is a well accepted data-dependency view, and in our current dependency view, we have included "actors" to make the graph less cluttered. But it is nice to also have a "pure" data-dependency view. We will include this view in our next version of provenance browser.
