      Description

      While one would normally use a resource provider to extend the content tree, sometimes, that can be not enough a code might make assumptions about the resources being actually being backed by JCR. This can be problematic as for example, a given resource can not necessarily be adapted to a Node nor be found via a Session.

      Hence, a similar approach on the JCR level allowing developers to mount content into sub trees of the repository itself can be helpful to be able to support these kind of usecase. We should provide a hook for a repository mount that takes over a given subpath by wrapping repositories returned by the base and dispatching to the mount when the request is for a given subpath.
