That leads us back to the question I asked before in another thread:

What should has to go into the core?

In the light of cocoon writing a new core, maybe we should think about
integrating cocoon smoother into forrest. Over in lenya there is a
recent thread about cocoon versions. That made me think about how can we
keep everything as small as possible. I mean something like including
cocoon via svn:external.
