+1, especially since Thorsten is refactoring things now. I'm not going 
to comment on the thread just yet since I started it, I'd like to hear 
other views first.

I will add one more point though. We are using the "ft:" namespace 
identifier for templates, this is the same identifier used  for 
forms-templates in Cocoon. We should think about a different identifier 
(I know we can change it if there is ever a clash, but wouldn't it be 
better to plan forward there is already an occasion where forms are 
being used in an experimental Forrest site).
