If you have a block (packaging type is 'jar') and use the Cocoon deployer it 
creates a minimal web application and mounts all blocks to "/". You have to add 
the deployer to the packaging phase.

For now you also have to provide a Spring property file that sets the mount-path 
to the COB-INF directory (src/main/resources/COB-INF).

As I get more and ore annoyed by continuous Jetty restarts, I will have a look 
at integrating the reloading classloader as a servlet filter very soon - 
hopefully this weekend.
