sure. i'd rather not duplicate effort :) and i'd rather not maintain 
such a tool for the long run, as i don't have a large development 
community and want to concentrate on my main project.

my tool is *extremely* simple. i hadn't considered the dependencies
described in the jira issue, mainly because i haven't encountered them
in the node types i'm registering.

my requirements are 1) that i can run the tool from maven or the command 
line so that i can create and populate the repository for my server when 
building a distribution of the server and 2) that using the tool does 
not force me to use the rest of your mapping layer.

while i'm definitely interested in the mapping layer, my jcr needs right 
now are extremely simple, and i'd rather keep my small amount of jcr 
client code than track another evolving, pre-alpha api - it's hard 
enough keeping up with jackrabbit :) when your mapping stuff is farther 
along, tho, i will definitely look to use it.

so what are your plans for node type registration? i noticed that you've 
defined an interface but have no implementation yet.
