In my application, I had one instance where I needed to keep track of an
ordered list of references to other nodes in the repository.  At first
glance, using a multi-valued property on my tracker node seemed like the
best idea.  Since that doesn't guarantee any sort of order, I resorted to
orderable child nodes, each one of which has a property that refers to the
desired node.  It's a little less elegant, but until Jackrabbit supports
orderable multi-valued properties, it will have to do.
