Way cool.

Some questions:

1) is there a way to connect to the last release of a file in 'review' 
mode like for*checkout*/xml-cocoon2/README.txt?rev=HEAD

2) does it work remotely? I mean, does it work if the CVS is not hosted 
on the same machine where Cocoon is running (and no, there is no NFS 
between them) [since you are using JRCS I would tend to think no, but 
didn't look into the code so I'd rather ask]

The reason for this is that I would love to be able to have a running 
cocoon publish documents *directly* from CVS, that is use CVS as a 
versioning content repository, which is the step one toward a poor-man 
(but not so poor on functionality!) CMS.

Will be very interesting for forrest as well.
