IMO this is difficult to maintain. If someone wants to look on the code 
base of a block he has to search for its dependencies first or search 
for the code at different places. Can't we extract the blocks from 2.1 
"as they are" at the moment and move them to cocoon-blocks module, so 
that they are collected at one place. Is the above proposal only because 
of community issues? What prevents us from doing the move to 
cocoon-blocks as first step?
