Cocoon gives you more flexibility, but it's heavier. Have you tried the 
latest Cocoon I put in, it's much faster than the one you used before.

On the other hand Anakia gives you speed. I personally don't give a damn 
about speed, since I use a validating XML editor, so I generate the docs 
only once a day. Have to generate the docs just to see how it comes out 
sucks big time. Wasn't it all about content-view separation? Then 
concentrate on the content.

I prefer to have Cocoon, and I think that the current one works ok for 
my needs, present and future.

A suggestion: in Centipede, I can use Maven's Anakia to generate the 
documentation. In this way Cocoon is used for the real site, Maven's 
Anakia for the ones that want speed in the doc writing cycle and don't 
use validating parsers.

On the top of this, Forrest uses Cocoon and we're getting ready to 
support builds of Apache sites. The Forrest site is autogenerated every 
hour and published automatically to http://www.krysalis.org/forrest/ .

I really hope we will use Forrest.
