I have been trying to work on a real light-weigth version of C2 for our
own site during the past few days. In general, one is amazed at the
start-up speed when essentially none of the nifty things from the samples
pages is included :-)

Presuming that work on Chello has difficulty catching up (their last 
release was dated C2 RC2 era,, I was 
wondering whether building light-weigth deployment versions of Cocoon 
shouldn't be a task for the core development team.

It is kind of difficult to keep track of the CVS tree while maintaining 
your own slimmed-down version of Cocoon. The conditional compilation works 
nicely, but maybe we should include a 'lean-and-mean' webapp target, too 
(or I have been looking over it if it is already there). A sample 'empty' 
xconf and sitemap would be nice, too, just including the stuff you get 
when getting rid of all optional jars.

My own lean-and-mean dist comes in at just 4 MB, javac.jar not being 
included. It has been built however with Textpad and Explorer handicraft 
instead of Ant wizardry :-)
