So far, every time I hear someone talk about using EJB's and cocoon, the
topic gets bundled with deploying cocoon in the appserver itself, which pegs
you to one front end machine and causes all of your display logic (cocoon)
to run on the same disks and cpus as your ejb logic.  Is no one using EJB's
on a remote (conceptually remote, even if it's on the same machine for now)
server from within cocoon?  Seems to me that a powerful set up is

CocoonServer ...  [CocoonServer ... CocoonServer ...] cluster



Of course the EJBServer and database can be clustered too, but you'd need a 
pretty whopping load before that would be necessary.
