There are 3 places a [partial] plan can be for an ear, and they are  
used in this order:

1. external plan
2. ear level geronimo-application.xml
3. module level geronimo|openejb-*.xml

So, anything in an external plan takes precedence over bits in (2) or  
(3) configuring the same module.  Anything in (2) takes precedence  
over a module level plan.  If a module level plan is missing from (1)  
its looked for in (2),then (3); if missing from (1) and (2), then its  
looked for in the module (3).

There is no attempt to merge plans from these different locations:  
e.g. if there's something in (1) for a module, any other plans are
