Probably not, but it's certainly a better wiki parser than the wiki 
parser we have now in Cocoon, so having it onboard would be an 
improvement. Wiki formats are here to stay, and IMHO our current 
solution is suboptimal.

Note that the wrapper code needed to create a RadeoxWikiGenerator would 
be fairly thin anyway, not a big thing.

Frankly, how many of our 53 blocks are needed in 80% of Cocoon's use 
cases? Can you name even 10% of our blocks in this category?

If there was an easy/popular way to distribute blocks outside of our 
CVS I'd agree, but history tends to show that (here and now), "outside" 
blocks get a lot less attention that "inside" ones.
