The easy way to tell I suppose is to check out trunk. There are a bunch 
of cocoon-whatever directories. Compare that list with what is in 
src/blocks in 2.1.  I believe the instructions are in README.m10n.txt.

Yes, my employer's firewall is set up so that only https works with 
svn.  That's fine because you need that in order to check in.  In any 
case, I did a clean check out and didn't have the problem.  It only 
happened when I tried to update my existing sandbox.

I have no idea.

I first tried it at ApacheCon in early December. As I recall it was in a 
whiteboard at the time. I've tried it several times since then. I've 
never been able to get a Cocoon up where I could test the code I wanted 
to modify.  I haven't tried it since the email you refer to but I will 
this weekend.
