yes. i made a change to that effect in my local copy of jcr-server.

fwiw, i also made a change that lets me define additional node types 
that are not collections for the purposes of DavResource.isCollection().

i'm not sure exactly what you mean.

one final comment is that using the existing dirlisting command, even 
with all of these changes, is just a stepping stone for me. eventually 
i'm going to make an export command that will place the parent node and 
its child nodes in request attributes and then forward the request to 
another uri - in this case a jsp which generates html that matches the 
rest of my server's ui.

of course this means i'll have to extend the export context to carry the 
servlet request and response, which is something tobias avoided in his 
initial implementation, but i think there's a compelling reason to do it.
