Thanks a lot! I just realized that CForms is just a new name for woody =) 

It's no wonder that I can't find any useful mention of it on 

So should I refer to woody docs/samples? I'm running cocoon 2.1.4 and it has 
woody samples but no CForms ones. 

P.S. Woody is marked as unstable and therefore it's somehow confusing
