It's a big flaw that I have tried in the past to explain. It puts Cocoon 
at the mercy of the servlet spec, and makes it dependent from that jar.

We had already basically decided that adding a getInputStream() was 
reasonable to add, and would have freed already part of Cocoon from the 
Servlet, so +1 to that.

For the Multipart thing, there had already been discussions, but they 
were not conclusive, so I'm in favor of deferring that to post 2.1.
