Sorry if I sound silly, but in the XCONF we can define what  
components we load in the ComponentManager, and are exposed  
throughout the entire Cocoon.

Now, given that 2.2 has a classloader-per-sitemap feature, would that  
mean that the components declared in the sitemap's XCONF are going to  
be loaded by the same classloader?

That would be _FANTASTIC_ for Database mappings (think Hybernate,  
ObjectWeb, et similia).
