Cocoon 2.2 already uses cocoon-pipeline-api-1.0.0, 
cocoon-sitemap-api-1.0.0., etc.

What concrete name and version number should we use for what we call 
corona-pipeline now? cocoon-pipeline-1.0.0 or cocoon-pipeline-2.0.0 Or 
do you propose to split up corona-pipeline and corona-sitemap into 
api/impl/components like we did in trunk? (NB: I would vote -100 on this 
because it just doesn't make sense to split up things into api and impl 
modules when there is most probably no second implementation in sight.)

Don't you think that this will blur the lines between Cocoon trunk and 
the Corona code too much and make it really difficult to understand what 
modules can be used together?

Additionally we would carve it in stone that Corona becomes the next 
major version of Cocoon. Not that I'm against this in general, but I'm 
not sure if it isn't too early for such a decision.
