So, a Web app should not have the Phoenix classloader in its heirarchy?

I looked at you loader stuff...very cool!

I think we need a better specification for Sevak.  What is its purpose?  How
should it interoperate with other apps.  Is it simply about embedding an
existing Servlet Container within Phoenix or is it about creating an
abstract container that can utilize implementations of existing containers?
I think in the long run, we need to define a complete set of services that
establish Sevak as a working interface specification and begin to adapt
existing containers to this specification.
