Well, there are two important things that need to be easy.  One is taking 
cocoon for a test drive by checking out the samples, and the other is 
'being able to have my stuff run inside of it'.  The first has been easy at 
the expense of the second, at least if you want to get rid of what you 
don't need.  I think everyone agrees that both should be easy, and it 
sounds like that will be accomplished.
