I am having second thoughts about whether we should remove the 
default-database-plan.xml file.

Some options could be:

a) Keep it and change it to use Derby rather than axion, so it is 
available for Demo applications etc?

b) Remove it as people may misuse it (e.g. deploying non demo applications 
on it, where two applications could end up using the same table names 
etc). This would mean the current izpack installer would need to be 
changed to remove the axion/default database stuff.

c) Remove it and enhance the izpack installer to enable the user to create 
a new database, prompting the user for a database name and a configuration 
Id to give to the generated plan.  The downside to this is that users 
probably won't be thinking this far ahead (about databases) when 
installing Geronimo.
