Hoorah! It really _does_ work!! I didn't have to debug my own code! This
rocks! Thanks for pushing this code over the hump, Giacomo. I added
another parameter to make the whitespace indenting stuff you added
optional; I reckon generating whitespace between elements in this case is
just a waste of resources since the output is likely to go to XSLT, but it
sure is nice to have for debugging purposes. Let me know if you disagree

I actually _just_ got cocoon2 working locally a few minutes ago and I
gotta say - Pier, this stuff is quite slick. It took a little while for
the brain to switch from old school "map extension to servlet" to new
school "associate URL prefix with sitemap", but it makes sense. I reckon
that most people are going to want to use mod_rewrite so as to not have
the /zone/servlet/ prefix in their URLs - or does tomcat provide an
alternate facility for that kind of thing?

Anyway, I checked in your patches and samples, Giacomo, thanks very much.
Keep 'em coming.
