Of course. This is one of our main concerns, but being Cocoon as
servlet, this is a problem that applies to all servlets so we decide not
to take care of that part. This was our point: servlets take care of how
to deal with virtual host, we inherit their solutions automatically.
Otherwise, Cocoon becomes a servlet engine or, even worse, a web server.

Yes, IMO, much more easier to leave a single Cocoon for each virtual
host rather than having one cocoon for all. A lot more client
flexibility of configuration.

We are concerned about all that, don't worry :)

Stefano Mazzocchi      One must still have chaos in oneself to be
