I've been using Cocoon for a few months now and there is no way I'm going to
trade in this sort of power for a configurable e-commerce suite!  I'd feel
like I was painting myself into a corner rather than preparing myself for
the unexpected ;-)  Alos, this is my first serious engagement with an open
source project and I'm having to much fun to quit now.  I just want to make
sure that I'm not overlooking any obvious layers for this sort of thing.

Thanks for the input :-)
