Subject More TCK kudos

I would also like to chime in and thank those people who worked on the 
security and interop tests.

Jeff Genender from Virtuas jumped right in and cranked out the JACC 
tests in no-time.  Not only did he come in cold and dove into the 
intricacies of JACC and our implementation, he also was able to tangle 
with some hairy TCK issues; I am prohibited from going into details but 
suffice it to say he has some nasty bite marks you know where.  Special 
thanks to Nachi, Jeff's wife, for putting up with her absent husband.

Dain Sundstrom from IBM who didn't take technical limitations as a final 
answer and coded around the obstacles we ran into.  We ran into many 
dead-ends but it was his can do attitude that got us through.  Dain was 
able to dig into the intricacies of IIOP and come up with some great 
solutions in an incredibly short time.  Dain was instrumental in 
coordinating the interop effort and was able to make sure that resources 
filled in gaps.  Special thanks Marleta for putting up w/ an absent Dain 
and for, well, pretty much putting up w/ Dain.

David Jencks, also from IBM.  There is no piece of the Geronimo server 
that David hasn't had a significant hand in and interop was no 
exception.  We didn't get to see him too much at JavaOne because he was 
holed up in a hotel room with Dave Blevins, cranking out tests.  Not 
many people know that David took the TCK effort so seriously that he 
vowed never to cut his hair or shave until all the tests passed.  We all 
eagerly wait to see the new David.  ;)

Thanks again guys!
