I think this is possible, but I wonder if it is worth the resource 
consumption and complexity to have multiple portal servers in the same 
Geronimo server.  In addition to the resource consumption, keeping the 
web console portal independent of the user portal limits the ability for 
a user to integrate portlets from their business applications and 
Geronimo admin.  A system administrator might want to manage their 
payroll system and their web applications from single user interface.

I think it would be fine to offer lexibility in the portal server that a 
user chooses to include in G.  However, if the user has chosen to use J2 
then I think it makes sense for the web console to use this as well 
rather than including another Portal server (Pluto) in the image.

just my 2 cents
