The idea behind the config.ser is that you can't edit it.  This may  
not be the wisest policy but it is the intent.  Instead, you should  
rebuild the plugin from its plan.  I recommend setting up a maven  
project using the car-maven-plugin and pom packaging to do this: this  
is how all the plugins that comprise geronimo are built.

This is not too easy if you just use one of the console wizards to  
construct a module and deploy it because the wizards don't save the  
plans, you have to work hard to extract them before you deploy.  I  
think its essential that we fix this before 2.2 is released.
