It seems a bit kludgy. I'd like to reiterate my earlier idea of
replacing the entire config package in Jackrabbit with an IoC
mechanism. Instead of instantiating Config instances and using them to
instantiate the actual Jackrabbit components, I think it would make
for a more modular design to allow a container (OSGi?) to directly
instantiate and compose the components.

This would require a bit more refactoring work, but I really think it
would pay off in simplifying the architecture and increasing

The RepositoryConfig class is not used to instantiate the
RepositoryImpl, only to carry configuration information to an existing
RepositoryImpl instance.
