Technically, I'm with you all the way but *psychologically* and from a 
marketing point of view I'd be -1 on making a source-only distribution.
IMHO this would only reinforce the feeling that Cocoon is meant for 
bearded unix gurus.

I know many people who would be very afraid of having to *compile* 
Cocoon before using it, maybe for fear that it would recompile their 
desktop into KDE at the same time ;-)

I think Nicola is right about the need to distribute a full-blown .war 
file (for life-without-a-compiler users) and a .jar (for other projects 
that use Cocoon).
