while this makes sense I thought Carsten was trying to solve 
another issue with his 'keep blocks in 2.1' idea

2.2 should introduce the so called 'real blocks' and as such will 
require a different setup/build/... which is most likely to be 
reflected in a split repository for the blocks...  So I guess in 
a 2.2 focus on real blocks one would never want to have the 
source of the blocks inside the same repo, right?

combining both your ideas we could go for a cocoon-blocks 
repository as soon as the cocoon-2.2 starts?

(by doing a per-block-sub-dir checkout of cocoon-blocks this 
would autmatically allow for single-block-checkout so putting all 
blocks in one repo seems no blocking thing on short notice)
