I had recommended we rename /system to /server as I think that most of 
the elements contained within it are what we typically think of when we 
think of the server in a more generic sense.

I'm not following why the minimal geronimo server would be pulled out 
into it's own top level tree (or am I mis-understanding your proposal)? 
   Isn't this just another assembly since I assume we'll still have at 
least one assembly available that will be the full Geronimo distribution 
for users that want a full blown server right out of the box?  BTW, I've 
been calling this more minimal assembly "framework" on my local build 
but I still have it located under /assemblies  (ie. 
assemblies/geronimo-framework) since it's the core framework from a user 
perspective used to build up a personalized server.
