Yep.

You know, the deeper I dig into this, the more I realize just how much
of a giant, oozing hack WebSphere is.  /This/ is the market leader?

From what I've been able to uncover so far (insert visuals of rotting
garbage, flies circling, etc.), it looks like I can /almost/ do what I
want by:

* Creating a setupCmdLine.bat file (which doesn't exist in the
WSAD-shipped version of WebSphere 4.0, but /does/ exist in a real
4.0 installation)
* Running seappinstall.bat -install \path\to\ear\file
* Doing startServer.bat or whatever it is

...but not quite, because it turns out that the only place to specify
things like WAS_ROOT (which you won't find referenced in any of the .bat
files, but you /will/ find referenced in a server-cfg.xml file) is in
the server-cfg.xml file itself, which of course I don't want to edit.
