I was just thinking about the ease of building/installing cocoon and
wondering that maybe we could have available for download a mega-jar of all
needed classes (assuming license restrictions don't get in the way).  I
mean, there's xalan, xerces, ant, FOP, fesi, gnuregex, JSDK and of course
Cocoon all open source licensed which comprises the standard required
downloads. I think this would take a lot of confusion out of the install for
beginners and make it a hell of lot easier to upgrade to a new version when
one is released?  I guess we'd have to test the combination but even if it's
just the standard latest releases, that would probably take care of the
majority of folks.
