Hm - although I agree that a Blog might be simpler, I think it' would
be useful to showcase the versioning operations if it's meant to be a
demo app for Jackrabbit. This is an area where many people struggle to
understand the spec and a real example could be very useful. On the
other hand, this area of Jackrabbit is pretty byzantine, so you may be
making trouble for yourself if you go down this route. Personally, I
don't see why either a blog or a wiki need be "fully featured". It's a
demo after all...
