I agree neither solution is neat. For version 0.1 of your plugin I would 
redefine all pertinent pipelines in the internal.xmap. The longer term 
solution will be to use the shiny new sitemap block mounting mechanism 
once we can upgrade Cocoon in Forrest. As I think I mentioned before 
this allows a level of inheritance in sitemaps, complete with the 
ability to override items in the super sitemaps. It even allows for 
multiple inheritance.

No, I meant forrest.xconf, but my response was certainly confusing. Let 
me try and explain.

Within forrest.xconf there are a properties set that can be accessed 
with {forrest:foo} and another set that are accessed with {project:bar}. 
The values of these properties are (in some cases) set in In other words the user is not supposed to edit 

See the element <component-instance name="defaults" 
class="org.apache.forrest.conf.ForrestConfModule"> for the {forrest:foo} 
properties and <component-instance name="project" 
class="org.apache.forrest.conf.ForrestConfModule"> for the {project:foo} 

The are tags that are replaced by Ant when Forrest is 
launched, but in the main they have the same names as properties set in
