replacing an extended mixin with it's supertype is problematic

                 Key: JCR-2772
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2772
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: jackrabbit-core
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: Tobias Bocanegra

node.addMixin() / node.removeMixin() have some checks to avoid redundant mixin settings on
a node and not only when the node is saved.

eg: have 2 mixins: mix:A and mix:AA where mix:AA > mix:A and a node (N with mix:AA) on

then, N.addMixin(mix:A)  has no effect, since it's regarded as redundant.  so you have to
remove mix:AA first and then add mix:A.
there is the first problem when applying mixin types programmatically, just be sure to remove
them first before adding new ones.

the 2nd problem occurs when mix:A has a mandatory property. then somehow when downgrading
from mix:AA to mix:A, some information is lost, and a save call results in

Unable to save node 'N': javax.jcr.nodetype.ConstraintViolationException: /test/A: mandatory
property {}prop does not exist.
you need to "touch" the property, otherwise it will not work.

so only this works:

N.setProperty("prop", N.getProperty("prop").getValue());
