People, please, order!

The sense/nonsense ratio in this thread is dangerously low.


I do see the need for componentized Cocoon apps, but in order to provide
this a significant number of things must change in Cocoon.

My idea is: let's make it a fully-baked solution, rather than a
half-baked 'it does what I need so I'm happy' one.


Cocoon Blocks are *not* generators, transformers and the like, these are
*components*, just implement different interfaces.

Expect a full-blown RT describing my concept of 'Cocoon Blocks' and how
to allow you guys do hot-deploy your stuff on Cocoon very soon.
