This is a feature request up on the Wrapper site already. On Windows at 
least you would still need an
application to handle the Wrapper as a service.  So you would end up 
with 3 tiers  The extra JVM
running in memory would also eat up a lot more resources than the native 
Wrapper does.  Wouldn't it
make more sense to port the Wrapper to the additional platforms?

By the way, a few months back, there was talk about bringing the Wrapper 
into Apache as either
a top level project or as a subproject of commons.  It seemed to get 
lost with all the JSR talk.  We
are still in favor of bringing it over.  It would be good to have more 
people working on it. :-)

Ok, I will do this as soon as the locations of all the jars are worked 
out in that other thread:
"Sevak and the tools.jar file"
