I think that is a separate issue although and it is a important one.  
I'm getting at what people get out of the box.  I expect us to produce 
at least 3 distributions, a server with Jetty, a server with Tomcat, 
and a minimal empty server.  The last option would be a server 
containing almost nothing, and all major services would be downloaded.
