Just to be sure (and document it), client code would like this, right?

    javax.jcr.Event event = events.nextEvent();
    if (event instanceof org.apache.jackrabbit.api.JackrabbitEvent) {
        if ( ((org.apache.jackrabbit.api.JackrabbitEvent) event).isLocal() ) {
            // event from local cluster node
        } else {
            // event from remote cluster node
    } else {
        // not a jackrabbit repository
