I think that Carsten is right, we already have an automatic mount mechanism.
We should have only one way of doing it.

Or we hardcode /mount, /samples and have automount in them, or simply 
use automount from the start.

But with global automount it's easy to just delete the samples dir, 
while in the other case you need to edit the root sitemap.

I'm with Carsten here, let's make the base sitemap do automount.

In this way if the users puts the cocoon war as ROOT, each sitemap put 
in the cocoon dir automatically becomes available, similarly to what 
Tomcat does.
