I'm on board with anything that works for Geronimo and still allows OpenEJB to function in
other scenarios without OSGi.

jetty - at the moment, gbean configurations... not thrilled with it or native jetty configuration
tomcat - custom jaxb processing of server.xml
activemq - xbean-blueprint (the reason for the existence of xbean-blueprint)
