If you want a little bit of 'peer review', and some infrastructure both in 
form of subversion as well as 'real-block capable container', you are most 
welcome over at Digital Product Meta Library. 

Metro is the forked Avalon Merlin, which even Stefano said "should be used in 
Cocoon, but not politically acceptable".
I also think that both Transit (Resource Management system) and Magic (build 
system) will help you a lot. Also, the community is pretty keen on getting 
people going effectively, and a lot of time is spent to make sure you get on 
your way, via mailing lists, IRC as well as ICQ directly with the developers.

Another interesting aspect, is that you could choose to complete ignore the 
Cocoon legacy, and start totally afresh.

Committership is granted frivilously...

If not interested, well then still I wish you the best and hope to hear a bit 
of the progress every now and then.
