there's no simple configuration change you can make. you'd have to:

1) define new node types that allow custom properties
2) provide an alternate implementation of DavResource (and perhaps a
few other interfaces) and at least one new io handler that store nodes
of your newly defined types

sorry. when i said "back end", i was referring to the "simple server"
and "jcr remoting server" implementations of the jcr-server
interfaces.  the implementation of simple server exists in order to
offer webdav protocol access to a repository full of nt:folder and
nt:file nodes. it does not offer any other options.
