Agreed, but that isn't what I'm looking for.

That's what I'm trying to avoid.  Are they at least available on a Maven 
repo somewhere?

I saw that too, but I don't want "to test the WebDAV remoting" as 
mentioned in the README; I want to use it.  That inevitably requires me 
to copy the test code and write my own client.  The ideal solution would 
be like org.apache.jackrabbit.rmi.client.ClientRepositoryFactory where I 
just configure it in my context.xml with the URL it needs and my code to 
lookup up the Repository object from JNDI doesn't need to change.  Does 
such RepositoryFactory exist?  Am I just dreaming?  :-)

Hmm, to be honest with you, not much.  :-)

Thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions.
