Literally, the only changes required would be:

  1.  Run cvs up -Pd in /www/
      instead of in /www/
  2.  Add one line to a .htaccess file in the cocoon site root.

If it were any more trivial than this, I would not have bothered to suggest
it for an existing site.  To demonstrate that it works, I have temporarily
added the following to .htaccess[*] for the incubator site:

  RedirectMatch Permanent /lenya/(.*)$1

That causes any reference to lenya website in the incubator's URL space to
redirect to the real web-site, including deep links.  This is the reverse of
what would be nice to have now, and is precisely what we would do when lenya
graduates, to keep any bookmarks to the incubator location working.

[*] Nicola, where do you want a .htaccess file checked in: incubator/site/
or incubator-site/build/site?  Based upon the presence of favicon.ico
uniquely in the latter, that is where I am assuming you want .htaccess, but
I do want to verify.
