In 2.0.3 (or from 2.0 to 2.0.4-dev) only the Cocoon source object is used.
We moved the source resolving to excalibur and starting with 2.1 only the
excalibur source resolving is used. As this is an incompatible change,
this will happen when we release 2.1. There are additional wrapper classes
to maintain as much compatibility as possible.

The current impl. does no caching - it is possible to implement it.

I assume you mean the sunshine, sunrise etc. code and not something from
No, there is no way around it - again with 2.1 the interpreted sitemap
is used instead and this is no longer a problem. Remember, the sunshine
components are for the 2.0.3 branch in the scratchpad.

Yes, each user has his own context. It's therefore stored in the session.
