Ah - I didn't notice the jars page is blank.  Yes, projects can provide
their own sitemap, and Forrest (and the Forrestbot) will use them.  The
sitemap.xmap.forrest05 file is a Forrest sitemap, modified to map faq/**
to the FAQ-handling subsitemap:

   <map:match pattern="faq/**body-*.xml">
     <map:mount uri-prefix="" src="faq.xmap" check-reload="yes" />

faq.xmap converts from faq-v10 to faq-v11 to document-v11 to HTML.  In
Cocoon's case, it should be overridden to also apply 

The jars.xml preprocessing is more tricky.  In the short term, it would
be easy enough to write a jars2document.xsl stylesheet and apply it in
sitemap.xmap.  Longer term, Forrest should perhaps add a facility for
calling Ant preprocessing targets.  I'll take that up on forrest-dev.

Any other Cocoon-specific filetypes that I've missed?

Whereabouts does Cocoon need redirects?  Should redirects be done with .htaccess
files or <meta> refreshes?  If .htaccess, they could exist in xml-site
without Forrest interfering.
