Jalopy was mentioned during that big cocoon-dev thread.

For some reason, we decided not to use it. Perhaps because
periodic cleanups can still cause havoc for people who
are working on those files. A lot of Cocoon people gave
it good reviews, but warned that any such cleanup
needs to be very careful.

Another issue is that it is only for java files,
whereas most of our problems are in the XSLT files.
