I'd like to know what this involves and why this is a good idea before  
anyone spends much time on it.  I don't think we want to encourage  
anyone to adopt a non-standard server layout without a good reason,  
and without this I'd expect any packaging to consist of the tar.gz  
server distro.  Now there's the question, which one..... we have about  
5 now.

I guess something that almost makes sense to be would be a "server  
construction kit" consisting of a geronimo plugin repository together  
with the framework server so that you could assemble servers of your  
choice.  I think this is pretty different in philosophy from most  
debian packages however.
