For me the ability to do per page config is the critical factor. This 
will solve Cocoon's problems too since it can be per folder too. 
However, I'm avoiding getting involved with this discussion as I really 
want to work on the 0.7 release and I have little enough time for now. 
I'll be glad to return to this once 0.7 is done. In the meantime feel 
free to proceed as you see fit.
