I would rather not include the oracle connector since I don't think it 
has been tested in the last year or so.  Matt would be able to advise 
on the stability of the db2 connector.  I would rather not include them 
unless we are quite confident they work reliably.

- hot deploy config (easy)
- dtds included in schema directory (pretty easy)
- online deployer.  I think this is basically a packaging issue at this 
point, but I haven't started trying to make it work
- offline deployer.  I would rather release this set of tools in a week 
or so when we have had more of a chance to discuss how they should 
work.  I have the start of new deployer and assembly command line tools 
based on the packaging and assembly plugins on my machine, but it is 
unlikely that any interface I come up with to run them will be 
considered usable by anyone else.

- trade app >> applications
-- more sample apps???
