"wow" what? if it makes sense, we say +1 and we move on implementing it.

Oh, yeah, you come from the tomcat world :)

This is wise... consider wrapping BSF and make it a cocoon2 component
(, then the other components responsible
of doing XSP will have access (as Composers) to this cocoon-ed BSF
wrapper so that you can plug in differe scripting frameworks if others
come available.

Even if I strongly doubt this will ever be the case if we can make BSF
open source under the Apache flag. Anyway, the architecture is there and
the interfaces are complex at first, but very handy once you get to know
