We need to certify a build of Geronimo - so Geronimo will be synonymous 
with a J2EE certified distribution. However there's no reason why we 
can't have a configuration tool that ships as a standard part of the 
Geronimo distribution where folks can plug and play any J2EE service - 
which just creates a new configuration of services for Geronimo.

There can be only 1, J2EE certified distribution of Geronimo - though 
users can customize it to do whatever they wish.
