It's the real union of all your experiences of Cocoon, and IBM's ones on
StyleBook (wich has already a some kind of idea of sitemap).

IT's not that difficult, the basic idea is that Cocoon now behaves more
like a web server, handling all requests for a specified path. The best
place to understand how this works is the Servlet 2.2 specification, in
the "web application" part.

This is how the StyleBook sitemap works, but it creates more problems
than it solves. Even translating links in XSL is not a great way of
doing it. I'm writing a short story on how we think it "should" be done
(before someone destroys it :)
