To create an appserver from scratch means not to reinvent everything :) (see
FAQ: "What other projects will Geronimo reuse?")

I think to develop another servlet/JSP engine isn't worth the effort because
there exist with Tomcat/Jetty already good products. It makes more sense to
concentrate the forces on a good integration of these components and, if
necessary, to enhance them.
