I just took a stab at porting the old gbeans to 4.x and everything is
compiling now again.  So I think for 4.x we should have at least the
same level of crappy integration that 3.x had.  I'm hoping we can do
better though.  I started to test with Geronimo 1.1 and I've him my
first big issue.  ActiveMQ 4.x depends on activeio 2.1 which is not
compatible with the version Geronimo uses.  So I think I'll work on
upgrading activemq to use activeio 3.x which CAN be concurrently used 
with the version Geronimo uses.  I would just upgrade Geronimo's
security module to use the 2.x or 3.x but activeio's interfaces are
still not pinned down and I want to avoid other folks from breaking
next time it changes.
