I see. Maybe it is possible to put the Jackrabbit part in child classes etc 
to make a migration to another Java CR easeir.

You must have made estimates. Otherwise I can say offhand that it will take 
longer to bukd the brigde then write a PHP CR ;-)

Ok. Noone ever knows the unknown, but if the 10% are such an uncalculable 
risk that you consider months for fixing it I wonder if the Java bridge is 
the right thing.

I'm still focussing on getting on with 4.x. I don't have the time for 
unpaid endeavours as rewriting TYPO3 in general and I don't believe in the 
CR. But that's only me. Seems to me that for this 5.x effort a new 
generation of TYPO3 devs is needed. New in the meaning of new-in-the-team 
and also young-enough-to-have-plenty-of-spare-time.
