I really value all the work and effort that you all put into this, 
but I would say:

[X] nah... put it somewhere else

We only want to have one flow implementation (language), which is
Javascript. If we put the Java version as a block in our CVS, it
immediately looks like that if we would have two and more implementations
or even worse, that the JavaScript implementation was a mistake. 
And then the confusion about "Which one should I use?", "Which
one is better?", "How long is the JavaScript impl. supported?" etc. 
starts. And I would really like to avoid this.

It's ok for me, to evaluate the Java Continuations and decide later 
which version to support (with a clear migration path if required),
so I would prefer to put it somewhere else (sf, cocoondev etc.).
If everyone else wants to have it directly in our cocoon cvs then
I would prefer the scratchpad block.
