I agree 100% with you.  Perhaps I was misleading when I spoke about
'standardising'.  I meant perhaps a related 'best practice' more than
anything formal.

The basics are pretty clear, yes.  The idea of hierarchies of child
nodes is the interesting bit  and where I came in, really, with the
thread about importing XML text to node hierarchies.  I'm happy to be
a poor man if I don't have to write all that complex stuff Daniel
wants :)  I'm sure Day has it in the labs anyway, heh?

Well, I only checked out jackrabbit the other day, but I do intend to
take a look when I have the time.  I guess it's all changed by now :)

Glad I could finally be clear enough to explain what I was getting at.
