yeah, that's true.

it seems that the ideal cmis client (in our case) would be an spi client
which then in term would expose jcr again.

absolutely. i think this would be particularly interesting given the fact that a
lot of the functionality is already defined in webdav.

i wonder if it is possibly to steer the tc into that direction.

good point.
do you want me to post this an issue for the tc? ...or do you want to
post it yourself.
