Done.  Got a branch up here:
  - Revision 430900: /geronimo/branches/jpa-plugin

Also threw up a wiki page:

I think I also got Dain roped into helping me with some of the naming  
parts (bought him breakfast and sprung it on him while he was all in  
a good mood).  We're sitting right next o each other here at a coffee  
shop so hopefully we can rise to the challenge of keeping stuff on  
the list.

The last idea in my head last night before I went to sleep was that I  
thought one good approach was to create the PersistenceUnitInfo  
objects sans their references to DataSources and shove them into a  
special JNDI Reference object that will pull the DataSource from JNDI  
and create the EntityManagerFactory and pass that back in the  
getValue method (or whatever it's called) of the JNDI Reference upon  
a lookup.

The user would still be responsible for configuring the name of the  
DataSource in the persistence.xml and that the DataSource should come  
from the right pool (i.e. the non-tx pool).

Again, this is for app-managed JPA.  Container-managed JPA is another  
ball of wax.

Anyway, more later.
