nono, they're not...

but when we insert now absolute links (e.g. with the infamous 
tab-hack: /forrest/) they remain absolute in the end-result 
(generated html) because of this we need to publish the generated 
html content on a /forrest URI of a webserver

therefore I propose to have a relativiser inside the cocoon CLI 
process... (maybe command line switch to set it "on")
it should push as much "../" in front of all the /-leading links 
  as there are /file-elements/* in the URI that caused it to be 

like this the process of generating off-line content immidiately 
takes into account the fact that it could be placed anywhere...
