Would it be possible to automatically transform a Workflow control file to 
a mountable sitemap using an XSLT stylesheet?  Sort of an "easy migration 
path" kind of thing.

Make you wonder if the same thing would be possible for something like JSP,
  ASP, and ColdFusion?  You'd think that a JSP->XSP converter would be a 
straightforward, simple transform.  ASP probably not because of language 
issues.  ColdFusion would be a little tricky, as you would have to emulate 
their custom language (JavaScript probably could do that if it had to), but 
is probably doable.

I realize that this could look like Flexibility Syndrome, but it would be 
*way cool* if Cocoon made it easy to adapt existing projects to the Sitemap/
Flowmap approach.  It's a great way to help people make the switch.
