Bait swallowed...hook, line and sinker !!
Ideally, of course you take Cocoon, Prowler and Jetspeed; just plug in the
existing data, to get ~abracadabra~ a site everyone would flock to. I wish
to test if its really so. Will let you all know of the results, if any.

Do you have any experience with Prowler ? Any comments ? What I'm very
interested in, is what the overall architecture looks like.

How do the Prowler, Cocoon and JetSpeed combine, to be more specific ?
(let's hope someone out there swallows the bait ;)
