I agree.  What's not to like about a generic migration tool to get 
people on Geronimo even if the first version only works when you migrate 
from JBoss? :-)

Personally, I'd still like to see the "2" in the name.  How about M2G 
(Migrate to Geronimo)?  The problem with something like "Geronimo 
Migration tool" or even just "migration tool" is that the direction 
isn't clear and we definitely want it to be known that we're helping you 
migrate to Geronimo.
