Naaah - I didn't mean any bad, nor was it 'just a joke'. It's just that 
accessing 'outside' information (like the RealPath of a file, servlet 
mountpoint (both in a physical and URI way), and various 
SourceResolver-related uses) sometimes feels a bit 'hacked onto the 
system', rather than becoming an integral part of the 'Cocoon API'. 
Bruno explained me the thing about ThreadLocal and the SourceResolver an 
hour ago, and I felt these things try to circumvent (in their typical 
usage) the fact that some info isn't readily accessible to certain 
components (passed into them) in a proper IoC way.

But I'm really getting out of my league here. :-s

Not meaning any bad really, just curious (and willing to look stupid for 
my ignorant wonderings).
