Glad that it works.

There is another configuration mechanism.

See example main/webapp/WEB-INF/properties/dev/
That is a demo of getting a configurable value into the
cocoon.xconf system. I gather that the same will work
in sitemaps, but haven't tried yet.

Also see explanation in Ralph's commit message when that
ability added to Cocoon (see link from FOR-1091 on 2008-08-22).
I gather that the forrest developer's site config (and perhaps
a plugin too) can provide properties via local properties
files, or via the "forrest.jvmargs=-D..." in*
files. I have not yet done enough testing with that.

Note that the "running modes" ability (i.e. the files
in the "dev|prod|etc." directories) is not present in
Cocoon-2.1 (unless someone wants to backport that).

The "properties system" is present. You would add your
config to the top-level main/webapp/WEB-INF/properties/
anyway, so no upgrade issues.
