Hmm ... perhaps this is a concern with the plugin itself.  The reason 
that the plugin is eligible to be installed on 2.1.2-SNAPSHOT (and even 
2.2-SNAPSHOT for that matter) is because I didn't include the 
car-maven-plugin config "includeVersion" set to true.  Had this been set 
the plugin would be marked as not installable in other Geronimo releases 
... hence no concern.  I think I left this off because I way 
experimenting with the this attribute for the version compatibility issues.

So ... if this is a concern then perhaps we should spin a new plugin 
image with strict Geronimo version checking for the plugin.  Now the 
question is ... "Should I make this simple change and respin the 
existing plugin of should we tackle the larger version issue as Kevan 
suggests using this plugin as a proof point?
