What non-ASL things?

I don't believe we're yet in a position to supply software which 
downloads non-ASF components from elsewhere. Having said that, putting 
something into SVN isn't strictly "releasing" software, but we do need 
to be aware of what we're putting in.

I've always thought we need to be broadening out beyond the core Cocoon, 
and our current blocks system has become decidedly cumbersome for new 
stuff like this. So I am keen to see stuff put onto the whiteboard - I'm 
curious to see where it takes us from here.
