Thanks for the detailed explanation, helps a lot. 

Sounds like your still a fair way off Maven2 support then, I don't
Know Maven and can not really help with that I don't think. What should
Forrest (and possibly Lenya too) do about these errors, David at Forrest
mentioned about changing cocoons gump descriptor, what is involved in this,
or should I talk to cocoon about it, I can not find any recent discussion
about this so apologies if it has already been answered. Turning the nag off
seems a bit like taking the battery out of a smoke detector.
