We sure are!

Perhaps we should use CVS branches instead of placing things in a
single lib/ directory in the scratchpad. This way each branch can have
its own version of the libraries it wants. This is also the way CVS
promotes concurent development.

As a side note, the libraries you see in schecoon/lib/ were added by
me by mistake. I will fix this ASAP.

The only reason you see this is because I wanted to have something
small that makes use of the existing Cocoon code, but doesn't
necessarily need to build Cocoon for it.

The problem is that I need some configuration in cocoon.xconf and
cocoon.roles to be altered, and the only way I could achieve this was
by building things as a separate webapp. I can move things on branch
of the main trunk, but then I would have to worry about merging back
and forth. Since the changes I'm doing do not affect Cocoon directly,
thanks to the great componentization of Cocoon, I prefer to them as an
extension to Cocoon.
