ParanoidClassLoader is not used anywhere.  It would have been
used for loading our classes from another location than
WEB-INF/lib.  I never got to putting it in action.

ParanoidCocoonServlet USED to have some real differences--I.e.
it loaded all the jars in the ClassLoader as well as used the
ServletClassloader as the parent.  It is REQUIRED to make Cocoon
work in IBM WebSphere.
