Really? :)

The spring configurator is imho of general use and I built it with this
in mind as I removed most of the Cocoon specific stuff - apart from the
package names there are no dependencies to cocoon (or any other 3rd
party libs) and we used it a lot outside of Cocoon.
It provides many nice features when you work with Spring. So, yes the
genreal idea was to move it to a broader place. It would be cool to have
it "nearer to Spring", but I personally don't have the time/energy to do
this right now.
I had the hope that with a release of 2.2 there woudl be many interested
people who find the configurator handy which then leads to a larger
community around the project etc. - but, well...

So if anyone thinks that it makes sense to promote this stuff
"somewhere", let's do it :)

Hmm, I haven't looked at the docs recently, but I thought i had
documented everything which is in it. It might be that the latest
features are not documented. I'll have a look at it in the next days.
