It's remarkably inconvenient to make this work at the moment,  
although it should be fairly easy to fix.

You've tried to change the wrong end of the plugin installation  
process :-/

I'm assuming that you have a separate configuration to install the  
additional  server-specific repository and config store that you want  
to install plugins into.

What you need to do is disable the PluginInstaller gbean in the rmi- 
naming module and add a replacement gbean into your server-specific  
repo plan that points to the repo and config store in that plan.

So, in config.xml you'd have

     <module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/rmi-naming/${version}/ 
         <gbean name="PluginInstaller" load="false"/>

and in your plan something like

     <gbean name="PluginInstaller"  
         <reference name="Repository">
         <reference name="ConfigStore">
         <reference name="ConfigManager">
         <reference name="ServerInfo">
         <reference name="ThreadPool">
         <reference name="PluginAttributeStore">

What we need is for the deploy tool to look at a target config store  
option of some kind as do the jsr-88 like deploy commands.  This  
should be easy to implement.  A JIRA issue would be a good place to  
start.  I don't think such an improvement will get into geronimo 1.2  
but it might into 2.0.
