An *application* (i.e. a normal JCR client) doesn't need to call
start(), as the repository is normally already running as a separate
server, webapp or another resource when the application wants to
access it.

The use case is being able to remotely manage for example a
jackrabbit-standalone process without shell scripts accessing the
server where the repository is running. This has nothing to do with
normal RepositoryFactory.getRepository() calls.
