Hmm, if you are using Cocoon, I don't think so. There are some
advantages in general: using a listener is the usual Spring way, so you
don't have to learn something new (ok, this is only a minimal
advantage). But a listener has the advantage that the context is
available to other servlets (!= Cocoon) as well. So it might make sense
to use a listener instead.

I'll go and add a paranoid listener today.
