Isn't this the whole idea of forrest.
We simply write our docs. Forrest supplies the skin and sitemap and we
run the Cocoon using "java" ant task.

eg. in forrest they do this:
    <java classname="org.apache.cocoon.Main" fork="true"
dir="${dir.containing.docs}" failonerror="true">
... args and classpath ...

The hardest part is copying all the right files across.
