The one big remaining synchronization block is that in the persistence
managers where they control access to the underlying persistence
store. This was a hard requirement for our older database persistence
managers that had to synchronize access to the potentially
thread-unsafe single JDBC connection they were using. Thanks to the
connection pooling support contributed in JCR-1456 we should now be
able to avoid also that problem. I'll be looking at that shortly.

Of course, the next concurrency bottleneck will then be the underlying
persistence store and ultimately the disk where the content gets
stored, but there are existing solutions (clustering, RAID, etc.) for
