I think it would be great if it can handle more than jboss to geronimo. 
     We can have a pluggable migration framework that does most of the 
migration work that is needed from server A to geronimo, and allow a 
user to build additional plugins to plugin their server specific stuff 
in.  For instance, a jboss plugin to have all the unique stuff that is 
needed for jboss to geronimo migration.
