Yepp, this is a complete list:

a) databases
Adds the driver class to web.xml to load the driver - we could either
forget about this or make different bundles/blocks/whatever for each driver.

b) faces
Adds an own listener

c) slide
Adds own servlet and mapping

d) xindice
Adds own servlet and mapping

e) XSP and all blocks adding logicsheets
The configuration for XSP is still in the main cocoon.xconf, so this one
has to be patched for XSP and logicsheets.

In addition, I could imagine a spring support adding the listener/filter.

I think slide and xindice are only required for the samples, or am I wrong?
