Here is an odd thought: What if we made the Cocoon core be a block,
at least in terms of how we layout the svn directory structure?
This goes with the idea of all blocks being external blocks.

Then (if we wanted to) we could create various directories containing
svn:external's to bring in specific versions or branches of the core
and selected create sets which include blocks which work
well together (for release bundles, to mark supported blocks via the
file system, etc.)
