Well, Stefano got me thinking on using URLs for block IDs (for 
example), and to possibly integrate modules with the Maven repository 
(which would be cool).

Then, one thing that Sylvain loves from PICO is the ability to have 
parent and children containers (or, in other words to have a tree 
structure of related containers), and the more I look at the current 
code, the more it makes sense...

Now, the problem with the last small "detail" is that also the 
configuration should be completely "tree based", and at this point (me 
thinks) should be directly embedded in the sitemap, rather than having 
some stuff in cocoon.xconf and some other in the sitemaps...

But in there there's something I don't quite smell as 100% right, and I 
don't know why...
