OK.  I managed to get CXF to use the geronimo specs versions of annotation, 
servlet, mail, and activation.    I had some problems with Mail.   The 
Geronimo Specs version is definitely not a 100% drop in replacement for Sun's 
1.4 versions.   The InternetHeaders object from Sun is much more tolerant 
of "out of spec" streams (example: unix EOL style) than Geronimo.   We had a 
couple tests that failed, but it's because of bad test data.   As soon as I 
did a unix2dos on the test data, the tests passed.

Anyway, I'm committing the changes to CXF now.
