My rationale is to get us started on the path of reconciliation for
the two transient space implementations (jackrabbit-core and jcr2spi)
we currently have in Jackrabbit.

However, I agree that it's bad to bundle this goal with the issue of
promoting SPI from contrib, so consider this "jackrabbit-core depends
on spi" idea withdrawn until I come up with a more convincing
rationale or roadmap in a separate thread.
