We can organize the repos how every you want.  Just propose what you

No there is not an file.  As for how you get the  
fully qualified artifact ID to uninstall an application, I think it  
depends on how you got the application in the first place.  If you  
know the directory in the repo, then you can work out the application  
id from the directory structure.  If you got the application from a  
running server, then you should already have the application id.

At the filesystem level there is no config-store?  At least there  
won't be one once someone mangages to remove it from the assembly  
plugin maven.xml file.
