> right, so we should decide whether we ship it as a plugin or in the assembly (properly
configured and enabled). If we go with the plugin idea then we should remove the mod and conf
and any other traces from the branch (not just the assembly). If we go the other way around
maybe we should remove the plugin for 1.2 and 2.0 as an alternative trying to avoid confusion.

It's not necessary (or IMO desirable) to remove a component from the
branch when its offered as a plugin instead of enabled in the default
assembly.  IMO. the decision about whether or not a component is part
of some particular assembly shouldn't necessarily dictate where the
source for that component resides.   As long as the component remains
in the branch we retain the option of enabling it in an assembly or
offering it as a plugin, or both.

In this case we're talking about the directory component.  If we
include it in the default assembly then we should still offer it as a
plugin since someone might uninstall it and then later decide to
reinstall it as a plugin.

(Geronimo side) is working.
