... and it does not work like we want it to, as the mounted sitemap 
blocks subsequent access to the base sitemap if it does not match.

I'll fix it by making a conditional check for every mount we do, and 
this should fix it for the time being, but we really should think about 
what we want to keep as a contract for sitemap extensibility for 0.7.

My impression is that we should only need to give users the possibility 
of using a sitemap to generate extra source documents using Cocoon, and 
nothing more. Any other customization would be something that touches 
Forrest itself and should be done by actually changing Forrest.
