I think we should target our common/intended use cases, which IMO is running geronimo *servers*,
not karaf instances...

IIUC, Rex wants to be able to detect running instances of Geronimo servers. This could be
used by install/uninstall programs or other management tools for administering Geronimo servers.

Personally, I'd like to understand what this code would look like. Is a patch available?

I think our handling of multiple server instances could be improved. Aids to help with the
creation, configuration, and control of server instances. Capturing information about running
server instances might help us with some of these issues...
