Having a modularized configuration was really a requirement, as it was - 
far more than an unstable cforms - making the configuration of Cocoon a 
real pain and I had the (unfortunate) opportunity to meet people that 
were considering Cocoon for their projects but ran away when seeing how 
complicated it is to configure it.

That's why I added include in xconf, and it seems this answered a need 
considering how people are now building around this.

Now about CForms and VPC, I plan to spend some time on it in one week, 
while on vacation (that's when I have time for sustained development 
effort on Cocoon lately), starting with CForms which seems more 
important to me than VPCs, as - from a release POV - stabilizing an 
existing feature is better than working on a new one.

I does require a substantial amount of refactoring of the sitemap engine 
and environment handling...
