OK, one more idea for the list...

I'm into testing on making  config.xml serve as both the attribute 
store and the persistent configuration list.  When this works, I think 
it would be useful to have a command line parameter that sets the 
location/name of the config.xml file to use  (maybe a system property). 
  Then we could choose the configuration on the command line

java -jar bin/server.jar -Dgeronimo.configuration=geronimo-jetty.xml

Scripts could remove the need to know the  file name :-)


Would this be adequate and remove the need for separate distributions?
