Subject Re: HttpServletRequest?

This brings up a good question.  Why does cocoon feel the need to wrap 
every object?  The cocoon Request interface is (as far as I can tell) 
identical to the HttpServletRequest interface.  From the code the only 
difference is that is wraps other objects like the session.  All this 
seems to do is frustrate developers who have to inter operate with other 
servlets running in the same container.

Fernando,  I think the solution for both of us is to hack the 
HttpRequest object and provide a getHttpServletReuqest method.
