I think that is not easy. If we package all jars into *one* apacheds
plugin we will enter the class loading hell. How is this solved in WTP?
There it is also possible to create instances of different Tomcat versions.

+1. I think this is the simplest solution.

Another point: We should consider to release the Server jars as OSGi
bundles to make it possible to just put them into the Studio/Eclipse
plugins folder.
