Your work is really appreciated!

I think we shouldn't ship Javaflow as block because this gives our user 
base the wrong impression. I'd like to see it in scratchpad and as soon 
as it is stable (community, technology) it should become part of Cocoon 
core. BTW, this is the reason why we have a separate scratchpad block!

Speaking in Cocoon 2.2 (3.0) semantics, it should be IMO (as the 
different environments, the Javascript-Flowinterpreter, ...?) in the 
middle between blocks and core.

Avoiding balkanization I'm -1 on other implementation than JS and Java 
in the Cocoon CVS. But this shouldn't prevent people to provide them or 
to provide e.g. Groovy examples somewhere else. But please not in our 
CVS ... things are complicated and messed up enough ...
