In the compatibility test suite we already have something like this
with separate Maven projects for each past Jackrabbit version.

The problem isn't creating the old repositories for use in the
backwards compatibility test. It's about making those repositories
available to the jackrabbit-core build without complicating the build
with a lot of extra test dependencies.
