I'm no genius - that is for sure.

If you are not familiar with the Cocoon: protocol yet, you will grow to 
love it. You can call any pipeline in the system using it. In general:

cocoon:/ - calls a pipeline in the current sitemap (i.e. mounted sitemap)
cocoon:// - calls the first matching pipeline it finds from the initial 
sitemap (i.e. the one doing the mounting)

There is more power to come when we enable wiring in plugins. But we'll 
worry about that when I find the time to do that work.
