The current version is actually quite well structured, especially with 
the main build.

The main problems are with:

1 - blocks build
2 - customized forrest usage
3 - no jar download system

1 -> using import and subant this can be made much easier to change and 
debug, and have each block be able to customize the build

2 -> there are an impressive number of targets just to do what Forrest 
does automatically... gotta investigate

3 -> some really see it as an issue

Also, the build of Cocoon can be made much better using macrodefs and 
top level tasks.
