There is no way that such an installer would replace the current system, 
merely augment it. This installer is nothing more than a wrapper around 
our existing Ant scripts anyway. After all, many Cocoon installations 
are on headless servers. The intention was to smooth over that early 
stage of usage when someone is at the beginning of learning Cocoon. 
Throwing them into having to copy and edit text files when they first 
start IMO introduces complexity that they could well do with learning a 
little later in their involvement with Cocoon.

But, having said that, it doesn't seem like people are that keen on the 
idea anyway.
