Sorry for butting in, but depending on the OS I definitely wouldn't
hesitate storing many thousands of files in a folder on a file system.
We've done so on Linux/Unix systems where many tens of thousands of
files were being stored in the same folder without any problems.

Of course I wouldn't do the same on Windows (neither would I try to
use the Gnome file manager on Linux to take a look at that folder, it
doesn't seem to handle it very gracefully).

Anyway, what you're saying is that we should try to do the same with
Jackrabbit? Several hundreds is okay, but many more and you'd better
use some kind of hierarchy?
