I guess my thinking only applies to the plugin archetype.  Lets say  
someone  writes some gbeans and comes up with a plugin using them that  
doesn't include any apache code.  Suppose they want to license the  
plugin under say lgpl.  With the apache license headers in the  
archetype templates, do they have to include an Apache notice with  
their plugin?

-- compiled plugin: maybe, the archetype has a bunch of hints about  
how to get the car-maven-plugin to generate the geronimo-plugin.xml,  
which goes into the plugin
-- source: yes, the generated pom will have apache license headers in  

Is this desirable?
