If I were a user I'd rather have my default be something that would  
be consistent with my configuration as it grows.  For instance, I  
install and have a "default instance"  and things are good.  Now I  
want to add another one.  Do I now have default and default02?  Or  
default and geronimo01?  Actually, I'd probably like something like  
geronimo01 as a default and add a geronimo02 as needed.  This way I'm  
not forced into an inconsistent naming scheme.  Although one could  
argue that a user who is sophisticated enough to run multiple  
instances would be able to work around it they will generally work  
around it after getting burned once.

Anyway, just going with the simple theme we've always talked about.
