Exactly.  It would be duplication of work.  And mostly really stupid  
work, too, since it would mean reinventing the JSR-170 concepts.

The job of the lightweight file system implementation is the job of  
the backend, in this case, JSR-170.  It makes a lot of sense to  
separate backend (i.e. storage) under a separate API, and where we  
now use the WikiPageProvider, we can get far better support by using

Nobody said anything about complex databases.

I have, over the past year, been writing a lightweight implementation  
of JSR-170, which uses a very similar pluggable provider system like  
the current WikiPageProvider.  And yes, it ships with a lightweight  
file system provider as well.  And no, it does not pass the TCK yet.   
And yes, I was planning to offer it as the default JCR Repository for  
JSPWiki 3, and yes, users who need HA or scalability can then switch  
to Jackrabbit at the flick of a switch.

Murray, calm down.  I wouldn't want to throw away the advantages of  
JSPWiki, and I also still do not particularly like databases.
