Use Alfresco as a Jackrabbit repository

Hello,
I am working with Pentaho BI Server which uses Jackrabbit to store user files. Out of the box, Pentaho can be configured to either use the filesystem or a RDBMS as its Jackrabbit repository. I like the idea of using Alfresco as the back-end, which would give me version control capability and several ways to manage the files, including CIFS access.
Alfresco supposedly supports the JCR API, so it should be possible to configure Pentaho's Jackrabbit to use it as such. What would I put into Jackrabbit's repository.xml? Are there ready-made libraries for this, or would I have to write my own? Or am I going about this the wrong way and I need to access not Alfresco, but its repository instead?
