Sorry Carsten, but this is a bit ridiculous, given all the lines of code 
you pour into Cocoon. You know how many lines of code you need to 
generate them in Ant?

In any case, we are going to add them to Forrest too for the lazy asses, 
if you care.

Yes, I am being bad, but I find it incredible to hear that Maven is 
great because it calls Ant to do trivial reports for you.

And looking at our current build, the main "offenders" are the doc 
generation tasks (that I don't know how they can be so many as Forrest 
should do it all by itself), and build targets that are really small, 
except for customizations that you would do with Maven in any case.

This is how it can easily be done in Ant:
