If we think we have a long term requirement for this, then that makes  
a lot of sense - and in fact Carlos did something similar for  
Continuum with an acegi experiment once I believe.

OTOH - since Archiva is a standalone app it would be best to be  
consistent across it since we have that freedom. And actually, because  
of the built-in support in webwork and struts2 for spring IOC, the web  
layer is the easiest to change if everything else is already migrated,  
so there'll be no need for the app itself to primarily be a Plexus run  
app (though it might still have some plexus components we'll want to  
pick up).
