Few rules for easy transition and "forward compatible" cocoon usage:

1) if you use DCP, don't! use XSP.
2) if you use SQP processor, don't! use XSP.
3) if you use LDAP processor, well, you should use the LDAP taglib if we
had one :) (we'll do sooner or later)..

the general patter is: use XSP + taglibs wherever possible!!! This will
require the least transition.

Everything else will work _almost_ as it is.

The only thing is that no <?cocoon-...?> PIs will be used in Cocoon2 so
you'll have to write your sitemap.... but I don't think that would be a
problem since we'll provide detailed information on how to do that.
(yes, Pier, someone will have to do it :)

How does that sound?
