It should be a document and FAQ, no matter what we do. I will take

This is the approach that i have been trying to take since the
year dot. In recent months, comments on cocoon-users, cocoon-dev,
and now here, lead me to start this proposal. If discussion and
testing goes against it, then i am happy not to put them on-line.

Maybe the missing piece has been explicit notes about how to
configure it with the various tools. However, what about the
web browsers? It seems that people want to use their browser
to read every file that they come across. For them it is broken
and that is a bad look for Forrest.
