Central administration (meaning a central location for all managing
informations) it's indeed a bad thing.

This is why the sitemap can be cascaded.

Thanks. I agree I did think of all aspects when writing Cocoon1, but
many information came out after I proposed the reactor pattern (almost
exactly a year ago, BTW, right before the first Exolab).

I do think Cocoon1 is useful, stable and fast enough to be used today in
commercial enviornments. I second that.

But even if Cocoon1 is the future of many server side commercial
applications, it's already the past for this project.

This project was born 6/12 months ahead of time and I want to keep that
