Excellent !! This is perhaps the best way to do this, although I still think
that the underlaying implementation should be from scratch. It is not Jetty
that we need to improve or fix but have geronimo be based on a clean,
separate and independent implementation.

Thanks. I am not trying to criticize the choices made, but simply trying to
understand them.

I would love to help you out with this implementation. Let me know where and
how to begin.
