no need, IMHO.

BUT, a cocoon-sample.war would be great for "Introduction". I.e. Download 
that, drop it in your servlet container, and you have Cocoon's samples 
running. I'm sure "build process" scares away some users instinctively, 
especially the "life-without-a-compiler-windows-inflicted-mindset" (potential 
cocoon) users.
If we then have a page describing how to build the "samples", it would again 
lower the "perceived complexity" a bit, allowing the "newcomer" to build it 
to ease confidence. Call it "microstep learning", as it is the best way...
