I think you are right: Unico worked at hippo during writing this Locationmap. We always have
used it in cocoon under "org.apache.cocoon.components.modules.input.LocationMapModule", but
I think it was Unico putting it in this package for us only, so I was confused about where
to find it...

We use it in 99% of our cocoon projects to create a mapping between repository uris and website
urls. I have pointed some people on the cocoon-user list to forrest who liked to achieve similar
things. So, perhaps it could/should be in a cocoon block
