Think I've lost two replies to this before sending so far...

I've added one of these to my own checkout. Will check it in along with 
some internationalisation code I'm working on.

It is currently untested. Try it and report back please.

As to is it 're-entrant'? Well, adding the Crawler class took it a lot 
further to being rentrant, but it isn't there yet. At the moment, the 
Bean is configured using cocoonBean.addTarget(). For it to be 
re-entrant, each call would need to use a different Crawler, with 
crawler.addTarget() used to add new targets. We'd have to decide what 
interface we want to expose, but when we've done that, I think the code 
changes should be pretty easy.
