In fact, for users, xslt in Cocoon is cool because you get instant 
feedback, and the current sitemap has really made things fly because 
changes are active right away.

For the core developers, AFAIK, there is only one way of dealing with 
this, and it's modularization. Smaller blocks are easier to understand, 
and faster to build and check. Forrest has seen revived interest since 
we have inserted a rudimentary plugin architecture.
