Yes, I know that works as I did that in order to check the cause of the 
problem in the first place. My concern is that there may be people out 
there (like me!) already using Cocoon 2.1 with standalone XIndice 1.0. 
For these people, the new embedded xindice will cause Cocoon to break 
with no explanation. This is not a good thing - especially given the 
decisions on this list to focus only on -released- versions of 

I guess our options are:

1) document the problem, stick with embedded xindice (good because we 
get latest xindice, bad because we quietly break existing sites)
2) disable embedded xindice by default (good because it means 
everything works as with previous cocoon 2.1.* releases, bad because we 
miss out on embedded functionality and xindice sample)
3) Do it some other way?
