Point taken, but we released Cocoon 2.1 half a year ago. Let's say we
manage adding support for e.g. a GroovyFlowInterpreter and declare it as
stable let's say in half a year. 
Firstly, I think this move would be very confusing for our user base. 
Secondly, I think somebody will come up with a JavaFlow implementation
sooner or later. Let's say this happens in 18 months. This would mean we
release an 'official flow implementation' every year ...
