I don't think so, now that I know the archetypes are for 
1.0.0-M2-SNAPSHOT (or something like that...)?  But see below...

I look at them a little bit.  -sample is as you described, and where 
for each of the three services the embedded servlet is a 
SitemapServlet.  In the case of -demo*, the embedded servlets are 
custom extensions of HttpServlet.  -demo1 depends on -demo2 and has a 
connection to it.

But anyway...

OK, that's all you meant :-)

yes... and, it turns out that the -sample and -demo* are now included 
in the dependencies for cocoon-webapp.  So, I had them all along.  
However, I have no clue what URI to request to access these samples.  I 
poked around for a long time trying to figure it out, but with no luck 
(I'm still just trying to figure out all this stuff, and learn Maven in 
the process etc.).  Any clues for me?
