Sorry, but I don't really get what to put what where.  OpenEJB-wise,  
I can get you an online deployer and an offline deployer as fast as  
flicking a switch -- we support both.  I'm just trying to understand  
what do to on the Geronimo side.

We only have one config for an openejb-deployer.  Do we want an  
online one (capable of adding containers etc based on the needs of  
the app) and an offline one or just an offline one or just an online  

I'm cool with whatever.
