I think that this is still open for TYPO3 5.0 - but that mainly depends 
on someone else coming up with a good alternative.

As I am concerned (and I also speak for Karsten, Sebastian and some 
others I think) I'm 90% sure that this is the right direction and we're 
already putting quite some effort into planning into that direction.

At the PHP conference in Frankfurt I spoke with some people about that 
idea and noone doubts that if it works out technically, such a PHP based 
content repository would be a really useful component and would change 
the way how we PHP developers work with content.

The reason why I don't say I'm 100% sure is that we have too few 
experience with actually trying it yet. During the next months we will 
see if a TYPO3 CR is just a nice dream or could become reality.

Tomorrow I will meet with Karsten again and I hope that we'll manage to 
create a little video podcast about the last weeks work. We created a 
project site, some initial documentation and even some code we'd like to 
present to you. But more tomorrow ...

Yes, that's true for the Jackrabbit / JavaBridge part, but someone who 
would like to help out with the PHP6 part is still welcome. Karsten 
managed to compile PHP6 on his Mac yesterday, but for example only 
without MySQL support ...
