You're welcome.

Sorry, that is not possible.

Redirect-to send a redirect message to the client which in turn loads
a new URL (have a look at the URL line of your browser!)

  client                 cocoon
    -----request A-------->
    <----redirect to B----
    -----request B-------->
    <----response for B---

Therefore you'd need to store the data in a session or encode it into
the URL. There are might be an action for this.
(There's at least a "TestAction" in scratchpad, that copies all
parameters from a given InputModule -- e.g. request -- to a given
OutputModule -- e.g. session -- that will help. OTOH that was created
to test and illustrate those modules and is not tuned performancewise.)

Calls OTOH work like

   client               cocoon
     ----request A------->
     <---response for A--

Thus parameters are available.

In CVS HEAD a new concept exists, a flowmap/script that makes it way
easier to express such flows. But it is at best alpha.
