Like I said, in 0.7 meta-data handling is poor. Better to switch to 0.8 
first. There's no point in you doing the work for 0.7 only to have to 
change in 0.8.

Almost certainly it will be. But Forrest does not currently support 
this, it will require a new Cocoon Genereator, hence some Java coding. 
If you are interested then join us on the Dev list where we can provide 
some background info on how to do it.

The vote has not finished yet, but you can see the proposed timeline 
(and the vote) in

The final release date (if passed in the above vote) is intended to be 
Monday 2007-04-16 at 22:00 UTC

Of course, this is dependant on no blockers being discovered during the 
testing phase.
