It's a sad news that Jacrabbit team hesitating about XPath support in future releases. XML
features of JCR are important for many 
applications (at least for me :) ). Besides it, XPath is most natural query language for hiarachial
structures and fits well JCR model.
Second, XPath is well known comparing to new search language defined by JCR2.0 and leverages
barier for developers.  
So I'd like to ask JR team to continue support of XPath in future releases.
