The main issue is making the console dynamic so that as different things 
get added to the server the console dynamically adjusts. This is easy to 
do in a full portal server like Jetspeed but is not really in the scope 
of the Pluto project (which is focused on implementing the portlet 

This is really halfway between Pluto and Jetspeed and perhaps when we 
look in detail at J2 it may be the perfect solution. Regardless, any 
work we do here should be done in conjuction with the Portals project as 
a whole.
