Hi Rex,

I don't have a good idea how to do something like this in karaf.  It would have to work through
config admin since any service opening a socket should get the port from config admin (the
shell does).  So I think we would need some kind of config admin administration tool that
would shift all the port values by some constant.  I haven't looked into anything about how
to implement something like this.

Geronimo startup script, by setting CONSOLE_OPTS=-Dkaraf.startLocalConsole=true -Dkaraf.startRemoteShell=true,
we can enable this feature. It retrieves the settings in /etc/ from
config admin service.

for the server instance that start later.

var/ for us) or there are better practices?
