I not only have Stefano's concern, I have another: configuration 
management and version control.  Xalan and Batik each have support for 
Mozilla's version of Rhino.  Both can productively be used with Cocoon. 
  When things go wrong, who will be in a position to debug the result? 
I realize that some people believe that fancy class loaders are the 
answer to all the worlds problems, but there are some cases where it 
simply is better to avoid the problem altogether.

Working harder to get the changes back into Mozilla's Rhino is the ideal 
path.  Failing that, renaming the codebase seems to be the next best
