correct.

there are no dependencies on slide. at the beginning there
was an experimental persistence plugin that used the webdavclientlib
to store the data on a webdav server rather than in the local file system.
but as this architecture/performance wise didn't make any sense
i removed it a while ago.

the jcr ri started life as a proposal in the slide cvs. the idea was
that slide could become *the* reference implementation of the 
jcr api (comparable to tomcat being the reference implementation
of the servlet api).

the proposal never attracted serious interest from within the
slide community. you can find more information on this subject
in the mail archive of the slide-dev list, eg. in this thread: 
http://www.mail-archive.com/slide-dev@jakarta.apache.org/msg11190.html

the rational for moving the code to incubator can be found here:
