Ok. I'll wait!. You are probably right that the first priority should be to
have something working.

I don't know the details of Servlet 2.2, so I'll have to take look on that
before understanding you. Anyway what I amb asking is.. will be Cocoon easy
to configure and use in the cases of many virtualhosts? I'm thinking in the
case of most hosting companies, which offer plans with a lot of cool stuff
(cgi, php, mysql, or even coldfusion...) but without having a dedicated
server for each costumer. Are ISP going to be able to offer Cocoon as a
extra service without too much pain? I think this is a important point,
since it could have strong effects in the popularity of Cocoon. I know
Cocoon is targetered to complex sites, but you should'nt completely forget
about small sites. And small sites are nearly always hosted in that kind of
hosting plans.
