Hi there,

in discussions in Apache Jackrabbit space, two more features have been 
mentioned as potentially useful:

1) The ability to send additional data along with the actual patch; such 
as a plain text string describing the change (think "commit" message), 
or user information.

2) The ability to *copy* (not *move*) objects around.

...feedback appreciated,
