The simple classes and demonstration of how to incorporate it is in
Cocoon CVS now.  It definitely needs some more robustness.  Hopefully
I've given you something to start with.  I just love how we can add
Components and Selectors via the configuration file.  I implemented
the DataSource as a Selector because I envision the ability to use
more than one DataSource with Cocoon.

My weekends are usually pretty full.  I go to work during the week
to get a break (since I can work on some of this stuff during business
hours).  If you can do anything with this over the weekend, I appreciate
the help; otherwise, I will continue working on it Monday.
