You cannot access them directly with the JCRNodeSource, which is meant 
to represent file-like abstractions which are mapped to nodes. Now such 
a source, you can get the corresponding Node and then do whatever you 
want with it.

The idea here is that the node holding the content also holds the 
property that gives the last modification. The distinction between file 
node and content node is more a point of view, and a given node should 
be able to have both roles.
