Hi Zev,

Indeed it seems that this section of the FAQ was not updated. A new API is
available using "import vistrails", and an example of its usage is here:

I will update the FAQ now.

Note that this new API doesn't yet support changing workflows, only loading
and executing them. To do changes, you would have to access the core
objects, which are somewhat harder to use (which is why we are developing a
user-friendly API on top of it).
