Hmmm.  My reading was that jars inside jars were not explicitly 
supported, and that which is not explicitly supported rarely works with 
Sun tools.  :-(.  To wit: "The value of this attribute specifies the 
relative URLs of the extensions or libraries that this application or 
extension needs" would imply that it would search the filesystem, given 
that it is using a URL.
