Yes, brilliant idea to have a webapp that wraps out mail resources. This
is the same Jetspeed idea and would be really helpful for our mail lists
to provide a web access, something like an Apache web portal for all the
information resources going on in its projects.

Of course, Cocoon driven :)

Yes, we should define something like that.

Totally, that's the namespace idea.

What do you mean?

I'm thinking about having the content namespace driven with a
configuration map that applies XSP logicsheets to the different
namespaces so that something like this would make sense:

 <page xmlns="page.dtd" 

  <title>Hello, you've requested me <utils:count/> times.</title>

   Your shopping cart is currently: <xturbine:shopping-cart/>

   Your data is: <xsql:query>select * from Data</xsql:query>

and then you XSLT-style it.

What do you think?
