I'd still like to see the plugin mangement in the console work  
something like the Confluence Plugin Repository Client ( http:// )

Which has a sex UI to show whats installed (version, urls, notes,  
etc), whats not (with simple buttons to install) and when stuff is  
out of date (with simple buttons to upgrade).  This would be *hugely*  
powerful for administrators managing a Geronimo instance.
