It's not so easy to follow the Cocoon mailing lists, specially it is 
very time consuming.

At our latest poll about 20 users answered and there were 3 CON votes 
(thanks Steven). I hope that Cocoon has more than 20 users worldwide and 
if the mentioned figures are representative this means that about 10 to 
20 % of our users are stick to JDK1.3. I think this is enough to have 
*really* good reasons if we have to move to JDK1.4. I agree completly 
with Gianugo's list of those really good points and that things for 
special blocks may be different.
