   Does this mean no matter which package extension the user is using(jar,
ear, rar or war), if a user want to deploy the artifact on Geronimo and
export it as a plugin, the user should specify <type>car<type> in the
deployment plan?

    Otherwise, the user need to use car-maven-plugin to convert their
applications into geronimo plugins batchly.
