Hi David,

Thanks for you feedback. I will gladly test out your work. Just let me 
know when you submit the changes. I have since moved on to prototyping 
permissions. I will have something tangible early next week. I am also 
writing up a document on how JackRabbit is configured. Whilst doing the 
configuration document, I figured I could deepen my understanding of 
node type definitions by trying to define node type definition for the 
configuration itself. I will peruse that line of enquiry once I have 
completed my An'A prototypes. Its back to work for me.
