In addition to the pluto use Aaron notes,  there is some activity to 
get jetspeed 2 running in geronimo.  I had jetspeed 2 running in 
geronimo about a year ago, so I strongly believe it is possible :-).  
There is at least one person working on integrating it now: there are 
some recent exchanges between Jian Liao and me.

If you make any progress on this we'd love a report, some instructions, 
or code.
