I was asking if "servlets:" source will be only used to list servlets or it will be fully
functional source. It's more question to Daniel to 
clarify his original description of "servlets:" source :-)

How it collects these files? By listing directories, right? If so I don't think it's good
solution because this functionality depends on 
where blocks are unpacked which is IMHO bad practise. Basically, one of the purposes to use
"servlet:" source is to avoid dependency on 
exact directory structure that is only block's internal concern.

I also wonder why we can't have cocoon-webapp's servlet registered in DispatcherServlet?
