I'm having computer hassles and having to time-share someone else's 
laptop for the next week, but I will try to get some time to do some 
hooking up of Geronimo JAAS with Jetty.

Yes, a branch would be the way to go. I'm only hesitating because we've 
already got 2 concurrent branches going in Jetty and a third might just 
push us over the edge, maintenance-wise :-) I'll have a chat to Greg and 
see what he recommends, we may be able to do the JAAC stuff in one of 
the existing branches.
