Splendid. I think that is exactly what I would want to do. We'd then have single(ish) 
pass generation with the benefits of link view. And if you just feed directly from the 
label into a serializer, it'll be pretty much the same in terms of performance as the 
LinkGatherer that we have now.

I would need help implementing this. Are you able to explain how?

There's a lot of pipeline building there that I wouldn't yet know how to do (but I'm 
willing to give it a go with guidance).

If we're to use my current approach, we'd add a different serializer at the end of the 
second sub-pipe, which would take the links and put them into a specific List in the 
ObjectModel. In fact, we could create a LinkGatheringOutputStream that'd be handed 
to the LinkSerializer to do that. That would leave most of the complexity simply in 
building the pipeline.

Can you guarantee that cocoon.process() will not complete until both sub-pipelines 
have completed their work?

I'll take a bit of a look into the pipeline building code (if I can find it) to see what I
work out.

This approach excites me. With help, I'd like to see if I can make it happen.
