The problem occurs if you want to open a resource that is not there.

For instance, if we want to write some information to the filesystem
in a file named "foo.xml", we would be thrown an exception if it was
not there.

This is a problem if we are actually creating the resource for the
first time!

I am back on a Cocoon centered project, so I am happy to begin contributing
