This needs clarification. We don't use a stable release
of Cocoon. We use trunk (currently 2.2). We don't stay
on the bleeding edge however. We use a svn revision
that works for us, and update forrest's Cocoon occasionally.

Cocoon has a general policy to use only released
versions of supporting products. At Forrest we don't
have this restriction.

Yes, the best way is to look at your own local version
of forrest in the ./lib/ directories.

We had a recent discussion that we need to have a document
that describes all of this, but no-one has done it.
