That is fine.  I was not concerned about the depend on the xmlbeans 
jar, but more so the various support xml jars (jaxp, blah, blah, blah).

Not a big deal, just wanted to try to avoid a dependency on XML as I 
believe that it should be possible to embed Geronimo in an environment 
where XML is not a used at all.
