the worst case scenario is that cocoon will ship without rhino and a 
script will download it for you at installation time. This would 
obviously saturate's pipe (since we can't use the ASF 
infrastructure system to distribute non-ASF stuff) so we are working 
hard to avoid this and find a much better solution.

the best case scenario is that our continuations patches get merged with 
the official rhino version and that the ASF finds a policy that allows 
us to keep distributing it or mozilla relicenses it.

Do not worry, there is intense activity in the background and I am 
confident that we'll have very good outcomes out of this discussion.
