Would anyone else like to pick this up and either commit my patch or 
else improve it and then commit it?
Tony Collen was going to do it but has gotten bogged down in work.

(See below for explanation of attached files.)

Hi Tony,
I wasn't sure of the best way to make patches to the Cocoon source ... I 
have my machine set up for Subversion rather than CVS.
Anyway, I think the attached files should do it.
cocoon-udiffs.txt [contains diffs on the files I changed, in unified diff format.]

These diffs are done relative to src/webapps in the Cocoon 2.1 source 
tree (grabbed today via CVS).

WARNING: my modifications to welcome.xml are wrong in that they modify 
data that is generated from elsewhere. But I don't know where it's 
generated from. Do you know and if so can you modify the source?
It really wasn't my intention to get into learning how Cocoon is built, 
so I'm hoping you know... :-)

The other attached files, sitemap.xmap and checkEnv.xsl, go in a new 
folder, src/webapps/tools.

Any suggestions about these changes are welcome.
