Re-configuring the server to support different configurations is a 
fairly trivial task. The intention is to actually package some of these 
configurations as maven artifacts during the normal Geronimo build but 
until then the plans for them can be found in the assembly module.

We (Gluecode) already do this to construct our JOE application platform 
which is targeted at certain usage models. Other organizations can, of 
course, do the same thing - tailor configurations for a specific 
application, workload, or customer requirements. Compliance with any 
thirdparty licensing provisions is left as an exercise for the user ;-)
