Was thinking of the case where geronimo is an embedded technology.. ISVs 
generally like embedded technologies to be as small and fast as 
possible.  Just seems strange that starting the server nearly doubles 
the disk footprint when no user applications are installed. Any chance 
of shrinking the default size for the recovery log.  Is 40M really 
needed? It seems a bit excessive..
