Subject Re: Is Cocoon the right tool?

first of all, you're right about the thing that we do know almost 
nothing about the overall architecture. I seem to have a sort of a bias 
nowadays. Forgive me that. It just when I was looking
examples and wondering if those are possible with Cocoon, the whole 
question interpret in my brains into something else.
Secondly, I used that plus sign as an AND operator in order the reader 
to differ these two concepts which in principal aren't even parallel and 
are two individual concepts. I can see I failed in that. What I meant, 
is that in order to finish his assignment with Cocoon, Fernando probably 
would need to write sitemaps as well XSL and other stuff.
