+1. I like my model of XML from SQL better, but I think Marcelo's stuff is
neat nonetheless. I been saying all along that we need something like
apache httpd's, so people who want to write things for
cocoon's nice plugin architecture have a central repository to share code
with one another. also so that modules that accomplish the same sort of
thing can compete on merit rather than on 'who got into the main cocoon
distro first'.
