That's my goal.  Just enough of the Geronimo framework to be able to 
deploy plugins.

I couldn't quite decide what to call it either which is why I'm using 
the term "geronimo-framework" for the assembly.  But I'm certainly open 
to other opinions.   I don't envision this being something that the 
casual user would pick up directly.  I image that we would still ship 
the full j2ee assembly and possibly even the minimal assembly.  Micro-G 
would be available for more sophisticated users that wanted to build a 
custom image and for vendors who might pick up Micro-G, build their own 
custom image, and then add their own software for redistribution/sale.
