interaction between the connection management and the tx manager quite a bit -- the tx manager
can now request an XAResource from the connection management rather than just getting handed
one when a pool starts up.

 So at least it should go to 2.2... and trunk to 3.0

Would be great to have these updates available for G 2.1.x and G 2.2.x servers! Personally,
I think moving the tx-manager branch to 2.2 and tx-manager trunk to 3.0 would be just fine.
I don't think the OSGi version scheme has much bearing for consumers of 2.1 and the new 2.2.
3.0 gives you a major version bump where you most need it -- where you have the most OSGi
consumers and where the spec version bumps. I won't have a strong objection to moving branch
to 3.0, if that's what is decided. Just strikes me as slightly confusing...
