Despite I don't have too much time nowadays I feel I'm working on it at 
least indirectly ;). Let me explain...

I didn't think it thoroughly but both jcr-taglib and jcr-commands might 
help. The taglib would help to display the nodes either in a tree or in 
a flat manner. btw, I'd like to improve it by adding ajax support 
through DWR[1]. I think this improvement would help to build rich UIs 
for other purposes too. e.g. a jcr backed resourcebundle console come to 
my mind because we talked about it a few days ago.

And, independently of the MVC framework of your choice, the project 
jcr-commands might help too, I'm thinking of binding commands to menu 

It seems that the tough part will be the fancy javascript but if the 
lines above have any sense we already have something :), WDYT?

kind regards,
