Could you outline some valid use cases for using multiple workspaces? The only 
one I found was having two workspaces: one for published content and one for 
content. But this is just for our use case which is centered around CMS, 
editing, publishing. I'm sure there are much more situations were it is worth to 
consider using multiple workspaces. This might be helpful for newcomers as well 
to show what jackrabbit could be used for.
