i fully agree and look forward to eventual resolution of JCR-299. i'd
like to see that happen for 1.0, but as i'm not qualified to make the
change myself, i won't press the issue ;)

until then, this virtual property strategy feels fragile and makes me
a bit nervous, but it'll do for now. thanks marcel!
