Agreed, but adding a custom method for checking namespace existence
increases the coupling between the backup tool and Jackrabbit.
Actually, you may want to use the safeRegisterNamespace() method I
added a few months ago. Proposing to add that in JSR 283 is also an
option, though I'm not sure if the use case is critical enough to
warrant inclusion in the standard.
