Yeah, kind of... I think of the whole problem of fixed configuration
structure another symptom of the current set of mostly fixed internal
interfaces. Since the main structure of Jackrabbit is defined by these
interfaces, the configuration model only needs to provide extension
points for those interfaces and nothing else.

Alternatively one could think of the fixed configuration model as the
cause of fixed interfaces. Since changing the configuration model is
so hard, it is also hard to change the interfaces that are being

I think you are right in raising the configuration model as a key question.
