I will do that.

jeje, just wait till I have the first version ready. ;-) While doing the
lm rewrite of the dispatcher I found many parts of the processing that
we should change that we can use contracts in e.g. xml processing of the
data model.

We can always bring it back, if we (or somebody else) can fix the bug.

Yeah thx very much, David. I tried for a while but there many components
involved. It is pretty heavy to understand each component before being
able to fix this bug. Again thx David that you are doing this, it is
most valuable for forrest.

It is even worse because if we e.g. want a cform plugin then this will
have another of this fixme notes. :/ trying to say that many blocks of
cocoon depending on JX 1.2.

Yeah, we should propose to drop the ns for the time this bug is being
fixed and go on with our work.


Anyway, as soon as v2 is totally based on the lm, I will give it another
go. (hopefully then I have internet @home again)
