I think there have been suggestions to make the groupId of all the  
plugins, o.a.g.plugins.  I'd like to do this eventually.  I think  
pluto-support and a couple others are the only ones this happened to

The original thinking was that dojo would be useful to other projects,  
so we should make it available separately from the web console.

I'd prefer to keep it separate.  IIRC if you don't install the plugin  
console plugin, you can't install any new apps or plugins into the  
geronimo server.  IMO being able to have a console without this  
capability is important.

Sorry to be negative, but I'd prefer to avoid all these changes.  If  
you think they are important, please explain why in more detail.
