Just to be clear, I did not have a *bad* experience with it, I just had
some extra things that I had to learn before I got Cocoon to work the
way I wanted... Things like, what blocks I want to include, and what
blocks I want to exclude.  The net result of having to consider this is
that I understand Cocoon a little more than when I simply downloaded and
installed a binary.

I think in fact that now that I feel more comfortable with the process
that I will probably continue to use the source release even when a
pre-compiled alternate is available again.
