It will mean some changes for the portal block as it use the Cocoon 
component and the same complicated setup as the the CocoonServlet. 
Geting a component container that is setup by a servlet context listener 
through the portlet context should work fine a simplify the portlet 
setup as well.

My personal goal is to release a blocks based Cocoon. But if anyone want 
to release something from trunk earlier, I'm fine with that. I just 
don't see any activity in that direction.

The important differences between 2.1 and trunk is in the cocoon-core, 
and as long as it is as complicated as it is today, only a few people 
understand it well enough to be able to work on it. So refactorings that 
make the core easier to understand and less monolithic will make it 
easier for more people to get involved, which IMO should increase the 
chance for a release.
