Another approach we discussed some time ago is to have read only 
sessions which are always on the newest revision (i.e. see all saved 
changes). Observation listeners on such sessions would then behave as 
they did with JR2. Since the underlying Microkernel implements an MVCC 
approach such read only sessions would be very easy and cheap to implement.
