	I agree. Lets nut this one out.

	Interesting idea, but I think they're based on the assumption
	that component configuration space is as equally dividable as an
	applications uri-space.
	This may or may not be true depending on the uri-space of the
	application being developed. Also if components are required across 2
	subsitemaps they would need to be in a parent sitemap anyway, right ?

	Perhaps this is flame bait, but what if we ran cinclude over the
	cocoon.roles and cocoon.xconf file to include files ? Then it's just a
	matter of using the predefined cinclude syntax ?

	Regardless of how, we really need a nice way to separate these files
	for large size applications. When these files start to get large, they
	just aren't maintainable.

	I have a suspicion Stefano has an idea based on a bigger
	picture here. I'm also interested in hearing it too.
