Basically, the whole Cocoon CLI system has been hacked away by Stefano
and also Gianugo, and not much touched since then.

It has been neglected for long, and as you know too well from the use
you made on Avalon site, it stopped at every single problem with links
it had, which BTW has never been the intention of the original writers.

Lately I have tweaked it to output better info to the user and not to
break on broken links.
It still needs more work though.

For now you have two options: include that link in the html as an
attribute to a tag (try <!-- <a href="blah.css"/> --> ) or patch the
Cocoon CLI which is and many other classes.
