I'm not sure I fully understand the implications of the second two  
options, but generally I'm on board with anything that works for  
Geronimo and still allows OpenEJB to function in other scenarios  
without OSGi.

Just for simplicity sake it would be nice to do things in the Geronimo  
way, but I get the feeling we're still figuring that out in reference  
to OSGi.  In which case, this might be a good use case for exploring  
that Geronimo-way question.

What are we going to be doing in regards to Jetty/Tomcat/ActiveMQ
