To be honest, I hadn't got my head around how to handle error conditions 
within the task. Maybe it should throw a BuildException, but as you 
observed, I didn't quite know what to do with this error - my Ant 
knowledge was too shaky (and stil is) to work out exactly what to do. Do 
you have any ideas of the best way to handle error reporting here?

The CocoonTask is based upon a simplified Java task, taken from within 
Ant itself, and with references to forking and a lot of other stuff
