That "perfectly good piece of software" was broken, and was not able to
fulfill Cocoon's aim, that is mainly Separation of Concerns.

It puts in a page (content) something that tells what to do with the page,
which has *nothing* to do with the content of the page itself.
But if you think that a page has to have all that is needed to render it,
there is no separation, of course ;-)

Cocoon1 separated Content and Style, but failed totally in separating
Administration and Flow from the first two.

Cocoon2 separates Administration and programming quite well, and Cocoon2.1
will separate Flow as well (there is a schecoon in scratchpad that already

If you think that all this is too complicated or theorical, just read the
"Cocoon2 is better than Cocoon1 in every respect".
