Sounds good.

Here's a quick draft of what potential client code could look like:

    (defn print-tree [node]
      (println (node :path))
      (doseq [child (child-nodes node)]
        (print-tree child)))

    (with-repository "http://localhost:8080/"
      (with-session "default" "admin" "admin"
        (print-tree (root-node session)))

It would be interesting to do stuff like generic tree traversal
methods. For example the above code could then be implemented like

    (with-repository "http://localhost:8080/"
      (with-session "default" "admin" "admin"
        (traverse-tree #(println (%1 :path)))))

working on: http://dev.day.com/content/ddc/blog.html?blog=author&author=Michael+Duerig
