you access a node? If not, you could drop the explicit reverse
dependency properties, and get the information with a DASL query only
when your client actually needs it.

currently supported by Jackrabbit. You'll need to implement them on
the application layer either as a part of the save() operation (like
you currently do in the DAV layer you've customized), in an event
listener using observation (with the asynchronous processing you
noticed), or as a separate batch process (again with the
