Probably 2.2.  The main obstacle is that we are still trying to use  
gbeans to assemble the activemq broker.  This is pretty  
unsatisfactory.  However using the spring xml assembly has 2 problems:
- pulls in spring (not a biggie)
- kill the jms console support.  In fact AFAIK its pretty hard to  
write out a spring xml file after you've modified the components...

So if we ditched the jms console we could probably do it in a day or  
two.... however I don't have a clear idea how to have a console that  
deals with a spring based config.  Maybe some of dains jaxb magic  
will provide a solution soon.

We might be able to have a console-free activemq 5 plugin for 2.1.1  
if someone wants to take a few minutes and set it up.
