Great, are the other geronimo*.xml descriptors still required (e.g.
geronimo-jetty.xml, geronimo-application.xml, etc.)?

Does anyone know if/how this can be done?

I thought that the serialized configs contained an arbitrary graph
of objects and that was why building a viewer was a big PITA? Am I
mixing up two different things here?

Whoops, I asked the question above twice ;-).

perl -e 'print unpack("u30","<0G)U8V4\@4VYY9&5R\"F9E<G)E=\$\!F<FEI+F-O;0\`\`");'
