absolutely agreed. but we're still struggling with completeing the
implementation of jcr 0.16.12 and 0.16.4 is already lurking around 
the corner :( 

i have rewritten large areas of jackrabbit (or its former incarnation in the
slide project) multiple times over the course of the last 2 years, trying 
to keep pace with the ever changing spec. getting jackrabbit and the tck 
feature complete has IMO absolute priority. i'll start working on improving 
javadoc once i got the more important items off my todo list.
