Seems good, as Forrest will become a set of blocks on top of Cocoon.
Now that I think of it, we should divide Forrest into separate blocks
too, and then have an uber-block that binds them together.

IOW we could have OTOMH these blocks:

 - linkrewriter (already there)
 - locationmap
 - "views"
 - themeing
 - etc

It would not be bad if our "plugins" became blocks too, even now.

Hmmm, this is not that good ;-P

I'd prefer that we used a fixed precompiled version of Cocoon, so not to
be stuck with an an eventually broken Cocoon, and also that we do not
have to compile it ourselves.
