Well, you can come to my office and I'll show you ;-)

The question, which I tried to get an answer to, was: is it worth taking
all the distributed bits of code, cleaning it up and putting it in a
centralized taglib? Currently it's a mess of code unsuitable for
publishing. Since I will be one of the last guys on this list to switch
to cocoon2, if I wrote a cocoon1 taglib now, it would have to wait very
long to get ported to cocoon2. So it's better to create something from
scratch for cocoon2.
