Hej, Stefano, please! Cocoon 1 is not a hacked design. You may have found it
wanting but it's no hack. The reactor pattern and the use of PIs is a
perfectly sound design. I think in the interests of central administration
(something I sometimes question the wisdom of) you wound up with pipe-lines.
Although I realize it's far too late in the day for this discussion, I for
one intend on using cocoon 1.7.x well into the future, if only to create
environments in which novice users can play (ie, create 'standalone'
documents which will be processed under the 'old' model).

In any case, cocoon 1 represents clean code AND design :)
