Subject Re: Config File Proposal (was... sort of...: [ANN] Apache Cocoon 2.1 Released - binary??)

I forgot to mention this, but if people like this idea I'd be willing to be
the one to actually have to try to make it happen.

Also, I'd like to point out the way I've envisioned/described it would be
backwards compatible with the current setup and a blank base configuration.
The case of cocoon.xconf would be to just increase the search path for
configuration to both files, so having all the configuration in the local
file shouldn't be a problem, and having all the components configured in the
local file also wouldn't be a problem (the base cocoon.xconf could even just
be detected as "not there" and ignored, and the base sitemap could just not
be specified in cocoon.xconf and therefor not looked for).

The last thing is maybe there's some obvious way to actually do this
seperation of configuration now and I just never knew about it.... in which
case, anyone mind letting me in on the secret? :) Please? hehe
