Good idea Michael,

I have been trying to get my head around Cocoon for a couple months now, 
without biting the bullet and devoting a solid week to it.

This approach hasn't been successful yet.  I think your idea may help a lot.

I would like to put in a request that you include a simple example using 
a custom generator instead of a flat XML file.  The reason is that I am 
coming from a servlet / JSP / struts background instead of a HTML / PHP 
/ whatever background.  I want to use Cocoon as a platform for web 
applications more than multi-platform publishing.
