Interesting enough, Paul, this is already here :)

The abstraction over the Servlet API was designed *explicitly* to allow
CLI *and* Mailet interface for Cocoon. Take a look at the CocoonServlet
code to know what I mean.

It just hasn't been implemented, but Cocoon already is completely
decoupled from the Servlet API (and making a Cocoon block is entirely
possible... even if the behavioral interface will be very complex since
it has to expose the Cocoon Environment Object model)

if you want to implement what you said, be our guest :) we don't require
*any* change whatsoever (at least, that I know of)
