There was a discussion recently on this...

At first, I thought that having one only directory for content was ok.
But then users would want to have both html files that are shown as-is, 
and html files that are decorated like other xml files.
Another problem comes with the fact that we may want to all files that 
are not able to be crawled by Cocoon.

So we came to the simple solution to have two trees: one for the stuff 
that Cocoon *can* process, and another one for the things that Cocoon 
must *not* process.

ATM the content/xdocs nesting is in fact confusing, but we plan to 
change that in the next release (BTW, it came out of a tentative to 
merge into one the trees, but believe me, it doesn't work, I used it on 
some projects and had to revert).

Something like


Jeff, do you remember the dir names and the other decisions we took 
about the resources/images dirs?
