I share Steven's feelings (I'm one of the "offlist") : we voted a 
cocoon-apps module to host Cocoon-related developments that don't belong 
to the core. And this ultra-specific component typically falls in this 

I don't discuss its quality nor its usefullness (SAP is used in large 
companies and this could be a "troyan horse" to bring Cocoon inside), 
but adding it to the main CVS repository, even in a block, would 
increase the bloat.

So +1 for this patch, but -0.5 for the main CVS repo (not a "-1" because 
I don't want to stop its publication).

Please also correlate these thoughts with the "zombie code" discussion.
