Out of interest... which part of Cocoon lacks "date/time awareness" -
the sitemap?  Can't a (custom-written) java module execute/call an
external program?  Also not sure about "directory listing" - does the
Directory Generator not serve in that role?

I've been using Cocoon almost since the start, and although there are 
bits I haven't grokked yet, I find it one of the most productive tools 
around. There are aspects of its design I disagree with (the removal of 
DTD-detected pipelines from v1.*, the lack of interface to the system 
like directory listing or date/time awareness, and the inability to 
execute an external program even when the program generates XML, unless 
you fake it via a web script), but it's flexible enough to work around 
most of these.

Reports of XSLT's demise are much exaggerated :-)
