Well, this is you experience, mine, using Flowscript + Hibernate was 
rather pleasant.

Not exactly: some weeks ago I've develop a webapp with tailored web.xml 
(I had to define a filter servlet to manage threadlocal Hibernate 
sessions). What I did is using the xpatch mechanism and put the patches 
into META-INF/cocoon/xpatch directory.

In my eyes, it is a way to define your own pseudoprotocols when re-using

Ajaxed CForms are a way to render forms more responsive, but the 
underlying, stateful, continuations-oriented structure of "plain" Cocoon 
forms is still there.

Avalon-managed components can be set up by specifying xconf fragments in 
META-INF/cocoon/avalon. To read your current settings, browse the 
META-INF directory in the JARs of Cocoon blocks.
