I think this would be a good idea too, as a matter of fact we already
looked into the feasibility of something like that and it seems to work
just fine. Some random access performance drawbacks if we want
to keep it strictly bound to the JCR API.

jCIFS though is a CIFS client, right? At least I have not found a CIFS
server other than Starlasoft's / Alfresco's?
Am I looking in the wrong place?

Really? So far I experienced a generally suboptimal perfomance
but it works just as well as CIFS for me, both on MacOSX and Windows.
What issues did you encounter?
