wouldn't this require knowing all possible future geronimo versions?
I think a more plausible alternative would be coming up with a  
"compatibility plugin" that has the aliases to convert from one g.  
version to another, and checking that this plugin will install on a  
2.1.2-SNAPSHOT and possibly 2.2-SNAPSHOT server that already has such  
a compat-plugin installed.

So, while I'm not sure any changes are needed in this plugin, I think  
it would be a good idea to make sure we do have a path to running it  
in later servers.

I'm also fine with the 1.0 version on it.
