I don't think we can support in-place deployment until after we figure  
out how to support direct use of bundles in our maven-like repo  
without copying them into the osgi structure.  I think about this  
sometimes but don't regard it as a high priority.

Can you be more specific about what doesn't work, and how you tried to  
deploy?  I didn't know any of the deploy commands worked enough to  
even start deployment.  If they do, It's not obvious to me what might  
be broken.  Does a packed bundle get created?  Does geroimo know how  
to tell osgi about it?
