I completely agree.

Maybe more flexible (and this is half of what FS is!) but more

Until I'm around, any proposal to make cocoon more suitable for binary 
pipelines will receive a -1 from me (vote, not veto! remember)

the main idea of this thread and Nicola's thoughts and Jeff's proposal 
is that cocoon should be instrumented to allow more binary process.

I strongly disagree.

Cocoon should process XML and focus on that. Other systems (a content 
repository, for example) should process the binaries (at creation time! 
not at publishing time!)

Say "no" to woodo!
