With respect to the web container, it is my intention to contribute
by writing abstract webcontainer and webconnector services.

I want to capture 99.999% of the common configuration and management
of the web tier in these services - so that you do not need to know
what underlying implementation will be (unless you really care).
There should be no need to have web container specific configuration
in the standard deployment.    Services such as distributed sessions,
single sign-on, and load balancing management should be able to
be written to work with any web container.

My first implementation of these will use Jetty, but a Tomcat version
I assume will follow if there is call for it.  As to what should be
the default and what get's certified... I'm way too biased to comment
on that.
