IIRC, MPL 1.0 is tainted - 1.1 is not. And Rhino consists of source 
code with a variety of license headers attached: a legal mess IMO. 
Maybe we should ask for a to-be-forked donation from Mozilla to get a 
"legally stable" snapshot to work upon.

My personal problem though is that I have a bit of an ethical issue 
asking for a (donation) favor from an open source community, knowing 
that we won't properly community-shepherd their code anyhow - 
preferring our own fork for obvious reasons.

Maybe we could rename it into "Cocoon Scripting Engine" while we are at 
it - as this seems to be a common usage pattern. ;-)
