The order of your extends doesn't make sense to me because the runtime 
dependencies are a superset of the compile time, so you'd be overkill on the 

The trick here with the shared tomcat lib war is that the set math changes 
direction - the compile time are the smallest, then generic runtime is bigger, 
then cmdline runtime is the most, but then the war (container based) is a little 
less.  It's that change of direction that's the tricky part.

I still like the idea that the set of shared jars on the container is more of a 
site local configuration rather than at the project level and that it is an 
exclusion at the end which would make it less of a hassle to deal with in the 
library definitions, I just don't know how it can be done in the config syntax.

Or I could be completely misguided...
