Could you provide details please? Are negative and/or inheritable
rights planned? If so how would the algorithm to determine access
rights look like?

How would a request using the TM look like? The classes in
org.apache.jackrabbit.core.state.tx confuse me a bit...

What is XASession.getXAResource() intended for? When talking about
transactions I was wondering why there is a new interface for
transaction while JTA defines one. Additionally, I do not quite
understand if this transction is what the user should use (why prepare
then?) or if it is something used by the TM (still why prepare then?).
 Are these distributed transactions? If so which are the parts of the
distributed transactions? What is TransactionalStore for? What is
PlaybackListener for?

Thanks for helping :)
