I apologize if you felt attacked, my friend, it was not my intention. As 
I wrote, I'm asking why you think that a cocoon bean should be part of 
the environment because I don't see it.

I'm not being cynical or ironic, I'm just curious! Please, don't get 
offended if I'm being somewhat 'strict' on new proposals... I would love 
to say 'please go ahead' for everything and I would have done that in 
the past, but today several people are betting their economical ass on 
the evolution of this project and we *must* take that into consideration.

This is why you probably perceive me as a roadblock sometimes.

But believe me, it's not because I don't value your contributions or 
your (finite, I know) time/energy, rather the opposite: exactly because 
I know you will stand the challenge I want to look for the best possible 
solution and get everything I can out of this magnificent pool of talents.

I'm sorry if sometimes it gets a little frustrating. But I don't know 
how to be friendlier than this and still pursue the task of keeping the 
architectural design focused.

Please, never forget that I would not spending time replying to a 
message if I didn't consider it valuable and I didn't appreciate your 
effort in writing it.

the o.a.c.Cocoon class is what I already consider as a bean (or a 
processor for that matter).. in fact, it was designed to be an Avalon 
Block (and could easily become one)... at the same time, my vision is 
limited and I wanted to see other visions and talk about them, that's 
why I asked since you seemed to have a more precise vision.

Yep.
