Yes and no:
Yes – theoretically it's a JCR bridge because all JSR-170 compliant CRs
implement the standard interfaces.
No – we'll have to add some functionality to the API, for example for
the management of Node Types. At that point we'll have likely specific
implementations for Jackrabbit etc.

But the point is: The development of the native PHP version (TYPO3 CR)
will take quite some time. In the meantime we need a working repository
already for the development of other parts of 5.0. Therefore the
Jackrabbit Connector will a) be a shortcut for us developers and b) a
future alternative to the PHP based TYPO3 CR for those companies who
want to access a JCR from TYPO3.

How can we know that? But I would guess that implementing 90% of the
interfaces will take something like a week and the rest 10% might take
some weeks or even months if big problems arise.
However, I think that it can be achievable having a working connector
until end of this year if we really work on it.
