I'd be better off leaving answering the question to Jeff, but here's
my take on Jeff's proposal that may answer your question.

AFAIUI, Jeff proposes a solution that doesn't need to be complicated
in its first days of living. Since, everybody knows how sockets work
the only issue is to combine separated Geronimo instance to a one
clustered environment. The real value of the proposal is that it's
that simple. A client may eventually use a better communication means
like AMQ by pluggable strategies (as Jeff pointed out), but it would
require more knowledge for the starters (like me) to understand and
help developing it.

I like the idea of doing it with the KISS principle in mind (thanks
Dain). Once the master-slave and client-master communications are done
(a 2/3th-closed triangle) the rest would be left to these magical
pluggable solutions.
