I think Toby Cabot has geronimo running with multiple config stores  
and repositories.  The packaging and assembly plugins use local-maven- 
repo based repository and config store implmementations.

One thing I completely don't understand :-) is how you are going to  
get a  classloader in geronimo to reload a class.  At the moment this  
requires stopping and (re)starting the configuration involved.   
Although this certainly doesn't involve redeploying the app, it is  
still somewhat non-trivial.  Do you have a faster way?
