There already is. The JetSpeed project (which now uses Cocoon!) is a
project to create portal-like solutions for web apps and it should
control those things.

Otherwise, the Turbine project should provide APIs for this.

True, one day Cocoon should merge with all these other web-app projects
or, at least, provide simple ways to operate together... but not until
Cocoon is finishing with SAX port and sitemap.

Or unless somebody comes up with a better idea, of course.
