If u only need some simple access, so no transactions.

Yes, we are all waiting for it, but I guess nobody should hold a breath
on it.

At the end, cocoon has no real repository integration, but various
approaches to access different kind of backends depending on ur special
situation. I do not say this is bad or good, I only say how it is.

Of course slide is integrated so one could say, cocoon has an rep.
integration, but that is not an repository abstraction which makes
applications using it independent of the implementation (slide).
