Can you provide some more details on how this would work?  Would you 
require that the users checkout geronimo/repo rather than 
geronimo/server/repo and perform a build to get the artifacts into the 
local maven repo?  If that is the case, then I don't see any benefit and 
it will in fact add an extra step to the Geronimo build process.  I must 
not be understanding your proposal.
