I wouldn't use it as a block, since as you indicated this requires
modifying the original Cocoon source tree.

I'm a bit suprised I didn't see a reference yet to this:

which is a solution that allows to easily build cocoon (with your own
build options), adjust configuration with xpatch, builds your java code,
copies resources, etc. This is an updated version of the
"YourCocoonBasedProject" thing on the Cocoon Wiki.

This is pretty similar to what Simone suggested, but the Ant script you
can download there is immediately useable, in a couple of minutes you're
up and running.

This solution also allows to easily 'switch' cocoon versions, e.g. to
try it out with a new cocoon version.
