well, I'm not sure.  I see two potential problems, aside from being too 
tired right now to put it together :-)

1. We aren't set up to certify it, how would we make it clear that the 
installer version wasn't certified?  Or is it certified???  I'd prefer 
to find a way to certify the installer based version.  I think it would 
be easy to build the installer using maven, but I'm not sure about 
unpacking/running it to get something to test.  If we found a way to 
make the installer include the certified zip distribution and just 
unpack it and change the config.* files I don't think this would be an 
issue.  Maybe it's ok to claim the installer is certified if it is 
built from the same assembly as the zip.  I'm just not sure.

2. It's built with unreleased software that I at least couldn't get for 
myself. I suppose that we could include a copy of the installer kit 
version we use, as we have included a copy of axis.

Anyway I hope we can figure out a way to answer these questions so we 
can put out a installer version.
