Now we might be facing the problem how to add a new broker, which is totally different from
the way in Geronimo 2.2.

file in the var/activemq folder, and while users add a new broker on the admin console, still
use that existed big edit box for the users to display the copied configuration file, then
package it as bundle, save it in the repository and start it.

brokers, so that we could list all the started and stopped brokers.

I confess that I didn't know/had forgotten that we had this capability. I don't know why it
was added or anybody who's actually used it. I also don't know anyone who is running multiple
brokers in the same server. Multiple brokers may be a nice feature to have, but I'm not sure
why we need admin console support for it.

Personally, I'd be fine if the admin console only supported management of the default broker.
Creation and configuration of additional brokers could be outside the scope of the admin console.
I have no problem with having a general technique for creating/managing all brokers, but that
would be low on my personal priority list...
