It might depend what it is.  However in general I think its best to  
provide plugins for each set of prerequisites.  For instance I  
probably won't object if you don't provide a plugin for tomcat and  
jeff probably won't object if you don't provide a plugin for jetty :-)

i.e. use your judgement on what is practical and good for the community.
