agreed. i would even go further and say that 
repository clustering is probably a very frequent 
requirement that should be on the roadmap of
any enterprise class repository.

i guess what stefan was talking about was the following
mechanism that is mandated by the jcp:

to get a final approval of jsr-170 we need to have a reference 
implementation that passes 100% of the tck.
and i would argue that before the spec is finalized we (day 
software at least in the role of the spec-lead) will have to 
focus our work on getting the reference implementation to 
pass 100% of the tck (and to get the tck developed in the 
first place), which only means that we as the spec lead
are in the weird position to have a list of priorities which
is indicated by jcp.
which of course is not applicable for anybody else.

of course anybody in the jackrabbit community is 
very welcome contribute many excellent features
to jackrabbit which are outside the spec (like 
wolfgangs jdbc suggestion).


.ps: also people might want to be cautious with 
massive extensions until the spec is finally 
approved just to save on redo work...
