So why is it that servers have to be in core? Why not move tomcat
outside of core? What's the justification for having it in core? Hell,
same with php. The only thing I can think of that depends on php in core
is squirrelmail. Zope's not in core, it's in extras and its a server.

1. core isn't really feature complete on its own w/o extras. I can't
install a system and finish it off w/o using extras.

2. extras is enabled by default in the final install of fedora core, so
people can easily get to all of those packages.
