Thanks to everybody that replied.  I think for now I'm just going to
maintain separate copies of cocoon.xconf and the sitemap and clobber the
cocoon copy when I start it up.  It means manually merging new stuff in
from these files when they change in cvs, but I can live with that for

It would also be pretty helpful if I could refer to global system
properties in either file.  It would help a lot if I could "ant run
-Dcocoon.check-reload=false" or something like that and refer to this
parameter in the xconf or sitemap files.  I couldn't figure out a way to
do this now (except maybe a custom input module for the sitemap).  Is
there a way?
