This was always a hack to get things working quickly. A better solution 
is always welcome once someone has the time. Nicola Ken has done some 
partial work on this (see his mail).

I assume you mean move the extra copying done in the webapp target into 
the war target...

The reason I put in the webapp target was because it is easier to work 
with in many situations. For example, I am often on slow connections and 
want to synchronise individual files rather than large war files. So I 
want to build a webapp not a war.

Of course, I could always unzip the war after building it, so I won't 
object to it if you insist.
