I am very interested (though I didn't find the time lately) to have a 
good look at, to see if there is a way to refactor it in such 
a way that it might become more maintainable: its 906 lines of code 
scare the hell out of me, and I'd like to see a more modular code that 
could be used not only from the command line but from other contexts as 

Some time ago I wrote a very quick and really dirty Cocoon Ant task, and 
I had to go the copy and paste approach which is really bad: this is 
just one of the examples of another possible Cocoon usage.

But there are plenty of possible environments that might leverage Cocoon 
as an "XML Enabler" technology, if only it was easier to write Cocoon 
enabled applications. So, while I cannot guarantee lots of time as of 
now, I'd like to see if there is interest in this task from the team 
and, if so, start thinking about (I know that Stefano will kill me for 
this :)) a small set of APIs that might be embedded in different 
contexts (be it Servlet, Command Line, Ant tasks, EJBs and, why not, 
standalone applications).

What about it?
