The Problem With Apache Jackrabbit

Jackrabbit is configured in repository.xml.  If you don't store your users' content on a filesystem (and really, who does except in special cases?), then you need to specify database config in this file.  5 times.  6 if you want clustering support.  You can avoid this by using JNDI database connection pooling provided by your j2ee server.  Unless you use Oracle.  Then you need to apply a patch to Jackrabbit that has been available for over a year but still isn't in the trunk.  Why not?  I have no clue.  That's the problem.
