Jeff, any comment here?  I can modify the installer to not have the Tomcat 
option for M4.  I now feel we are better waiting and providing the Tomcat 
functionality in an unstable build from HEAD or M5, working on making it 
as simple as possible for the user to configure and provide good 
documentation with the installation. 

I tried using M4 with Jetty disabled last night and had some problems (ran 
out of time to debug.. was getting late).  It may be something I did 
wrong, see mail thread "Problems running DebugConsole on Tomcat, with 
Jetty removed from plans in M4".

GERONIMO-809 is complete now.  JIRA being down prevented me from 
completing it last night.
