Jackrabbit and possibly trying yet another approach to improve Jackrabbit. I doubt there are
enough committers who would work on that. If 100% JCR spec compatibility is desired, it probably
makes more sense to put the energy in extending oak-jcr to support that (with compromises
etc.) rather then improving the existing Jackrabbit architecture.

I second that. This would also send a strong signal regarding the 
intention of the Oak effort. Furthermore it would reduce the 
fragmentation of the community and keep efforts focused.

Technically, since the functionality of Oak is largely based on the core 
plugins, we could also identify sets of plugins for specific system 
behaviours. So there could be a set of plugins for full JCR compliance 
(think JSR 170, 283, 333) and probably other ones for embedded usage, 
small scale cluster usage, large scale cluster usage and so on.
