Right. Look again, the Cocoon2 sitemap _does_ reload dynamically, even
today. But since this is kind of slow (expecially when you have several
cascaded sitemaps), we'll make it possible to turn this off for
production (if you care)

This is the goal, but it will probably work only with Xerces since the
SAX API doesn't give us information on all the resources that were
touched to create a SAX stream and we don't want Xerces to cache the
stream itself.

No, nothing changed on this side.

No, of course, but this is a bug, not a design fault and can be fixed
with more careful coding... we just didn't want to spend time at that
since there are things that take the precedence.

Anyway, we must tell the Xerces people we need that feature... I'll do
this soon.

Stefano Mazzocchi      One must still have chaos in oneself to be
