I understand that. Funny thing is, I cannot enter my sources into
the Tamino distribution because our supporters argue in the same
sense: They don't want to support Cocoon. :-)

I can only offer my email address for questions and that anyone is
welcome to say "if you have problems with that stuff we don't like,
contact Jochen Wiedmann and not us". If I get 5 or 10 mails per
month, that wouldn't make much, compared to that 5 or 10 I get per
day for my Perl modules.

I'll be happy with that.
