Is there an app server independent jndi location they can look up their 
non-portable resource at?  What is it?  The location we were using 
(geronimo:any/place/you/want) was certainly not available on any other 
app server.  If they have to change the location for each app server 
anyway, why not have them look it up in the portable java:comp/env 
location and use a name geronimo can resolve without a plan entry?
