I'm glad to hear that.

I actually think having more functionality is not an advantage. Less is 
more! Most users will be better served by a simpler solution, and they 
can always switch to JCS by editing cocoon.xconf when (and *if*) they 
have the need.

So, I propose to:

- move the EHCache store out of scratchpad
- make it the default implementation
- possibly move the JCS store out of the scratchpad
