Right. This is where I'm interested in the Tuscany/Geronimo  
integration... Once we have a working Tuscany plugin, this type of  
integration will be nearly automatic... You could install the tuscany  
plugin and generate a custom assembly. Will also want to add a server  
assembly stage to the plugin build. So, that a geronimo-tuscany server  
assembly would be created as part of the tuscany plugin build.

Ultimately, I think we'll want to split the Tuscany plugin into  
multiple parts -- rather than one big plugin -- so that a server can  
only contain only the functionality that application(s) require.
