my deploy process does <get> in an ant build file to hit the server and
verify that the build timestamp matches that I just uploaded. That test
passed, we turn to httpunit to first validate the config (happyaxis.jsp),
then do real work.

I dont like spawning threads in a web server as unless you remember to kill
them during unload they persist, maybe even through a reload of the webapp.
