I like the ability to choose the Sitemap in use.  In reality this turns
out to be an object implementing the Processor interface (like Cocoon

By keying off of that relationship, I should be able to replace the Sitemap
with my own proprietary version.

So I am +1 on having the sitemap implementation pluggable.  This allows for
us to experiment with different mapping techniques/technologies--while
maintaining the original markup.

This is a *good* thing.  I would be +1 on making the pluggability part of
the next maintenance release.  But, just like Vadim, -1 on making the default
interpretted just yet.

There is absolutely no java compiler that does not require the filesystem.
It is a major bummer, but there is little we can do.  Jikes is much faster
than javac, so I would encourage its use if the site needs to squeeze a
bit more speed out.
