  I asked a similar question in the past to no avail. Looking through
the code, I think it gets the nodes itemID and then does some 
extra-magic on it to create the token. I think you could re-create
this code. I think jackrabbit 2.0 makes it a little easier. 
But, I am curious what others do about this problem. So, I am 
giving this question a little bump with a reply. :)
