The idea is that at packaging time, a M2 plugin scans an artifact (jar) whether 
it is a Cocoon blocks if it is, some files (xconf, xlog, etc.) are extracted 
into the right directory. e.g. all .xconf files go to WEB-INF/xconf.

The unit-tests are already working but I need some more time to provide a sample 
based on cocoon-webapp. This will make it hopefully clearer.
