it's a bit more difficult but in general yes.

Actually we already have such a script (tools/pom-updater) but still I 
always managed to break the build.

All our POMs in snapshot mode refer to the (not-changing) cocoon-parent POM.

After writing this I see the potential problem: If we want to use some 
of our own modules in their released versions, they would pull in the 
released cocoon-parent POM. This could lead to some unwanted side-effects.

This means that if we want to use released versions of our own modules, 
we have to increase the version number of cocoon-parent and should 
follow Carsten's proposal and remove all intermediary POMs 
(tools-modules, blocks-modules) except core-modules.
