Tried to with an updated chaperon and chaperon block, but I hit this

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.excalibur.source.Source.getURI()Ljava/lang/String;
    at org.apache.cocoon.transformation.LexicalTransformer.setup(
    at org.apache.cocoon.components.pipeline.AbstractProcessingPipeline.setupPipeline(
    at org.apache.cocoon.components.pipeline.impl.AbstractCachingProcessingPipeline.setupPipeline(

When I try to upgrade just excalibur-sourceresolve, I get this exception:

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.excalibur.source.Source.discardValidity()V
    at org.apache.cocoon.Cocoon.configure(
    at org.apache.cocoon.Cocoon.initialize(
    at org.apache.cocoon.servlet.CocoonServlet.createCocoon(

So looks like we can't get this wiki stuff working without upgrading
Cocoon, which would break sitemap backwards-compat, which I really don't
think we should do in the 0.3.x series.

So how about:
 - release 0.3.1 with cwiki completely removed
 - upgrade Cocoon and if everything seems to work, do a 0.4 alpha release
   (alpha indicating that sitemap contracts are liable to break).

Wouldn't it be better to have iguanacharlie as a completely independent
forrest-css skin?  Seems better to make a clean break, than to gradually
lose forrest-site's compatibility with old browsers.
