Yes, I think this "template" notion (I think we've used that term at 
other times) is the next logical step in the flexible server.  I'm not 
sure if you were thinking only in terms of the Server Assembly function 
(from the console or command line) ... but this would make a lot of 
sense from a remote install capability as well.  We could get to a point 
where the user could just download the framework assembly and then 
choose to install a template from a "Template Repository" for something 
like "Tomcat minimal" or "Jetty full Java EE 5" and have the server 
image upgraded to that configuration.
