We can certainly flush out what we have at its current level.  That  
level would be 'does not run any apps of any kind', is that cool? ;-p

We agreed to an extremely aggressive date (2.0-M2) because it's just  
so much better to get the EJB 3 stuff in M2 to give it a really big  
attraction, but it's extremely extremely extremely tight.  But we'll  
get there or die trying.  Sometimes you have to take one for the team  
and do whatever it takes to make that happen.

It'll be quite flawed, we're going for "minimally function".  High  
priorities are:

  1.  Basic invocations
  2.  JNDI references to the ejb
  3.  JNDI references from the ejb
  4.  Transaction support

If were really lucky(er) priorities:
  - Security integration

Not going to happen:
  - Web Services Integration
  - Corba integration

In this list we're still fighting with priority #1 as to get there  
requires the most upfront work in deployment etc.  Working from a  
timetable of hours counting down to zero, this nut should crack soon  
but hasn't cracked yet so can't say exactly which hour.
