Thanks Carsten, this is just what I needed.

I couldn't find any documentation or any examples of this in use, so  
if anyone else is interested this is what you need to do to register  
a sitemap listener...

1. Create a class implementing  
org.apache.cocoon.sitemap.EnterSitemapEventListener and/or  

2. Define it as a spring bean in a file at config/spring/*.xml  
relative to your sitemap, so at COB-INF/config/spring/*.xml if you  
want the listener registered with a block's default sitemap. The  
relative path is important as the listener must be bound to a  
specific sitemap. Therefore if you want to attach your listener to a  
sub-sitemap you must put your sub-sitemap in its own directory and  
put the spring config relative to that.

3. That's it, all requests to that sitemap will fire the registered
