When I first looked at Cocoon 3, I thought it was more like a return
to Cocoon's roots, clearing away a lot of stuff that had accumulated
and concentrating on the pipeline.

It's quite true that, without intense study of what documentation
there is, it is very difficult to find any mention of how to configure
it with XML, but the XML configurator is still in there.
