That's good idea. But I'm lost at how to construct the value for the 
property. It can not be relative... because current working directory is 
not known. And it can not be absolute. And there is no any dynamically 
expandable token which would point to, say, context root... Suggestions?

PS As a shortcut I can set a system property in cocoon.[bat|sh]
