	Can we talk about this a bit more?  I'm concerned that a property 
database won't work as well.  As in, we have a ton of configurable 
properies set across a ton of GBeans.  We could provide a single database 
to allow editing of like the 30% of those we expect to be most changed, 
but then what happens when someone wants to change something else without 
redeploying the server plans?  Eventually, I see this database getting big 
enough that it becomes pretty irratating to manage having the "editable" 
properties in two places, or balancing which goes where.

	In other words, I think we'd do better to have a more flexible way
to edit GBean properties in general, rather than keeping the current plan 
strategy but also using a separate dynamic database.

	If we were going to go with this kind of dynamic database
approach, I'd like to really minimize what we put in there (ports and
perhaps security/SSL configuration) and then insist that you use a tool or
console to edit the rest (even if that means you have to start the
server).  Maybe this is what you had in mind.
