Just try to implement some mavenized cocoon based webapp that needs to 
change something in .xconf files. The urgent need will come.

I like the idea except this is still and idea and I already mavenized 
some my production sites. As I started to do it about a month ago I also 
started to hammer this mailing list with questions and requests. At the 
same time almost the same request came into jira from cocoon user.

The common agreement here is we want to release 2.2 ASAP. Now some users 
already started testing it and found holes in our functionality. If we 
tell them to wait the user will simply switch back to 2.1.x. I have 
spent more time during last month fighting with cocoon build/deploy than 
actually writing my software. I haven't resigned just because I may 
commit stuff that allows me to make another few steps forward. Users do 
not have such comfort.

BTW: I do not want to patch cforms at all. I never needed it. It was 
just an example. I have lots of other cases in other cocoon areas that 
will not be resolved by fixing cforms.
