Thanks Aaron! You made me think about it a bit more and I think I found 
it :) I thought Geronimo can only have one deployer that can handle a 
type (war, ejb, rar, ear, etc.). So, the idea was to comment one of them 
- either Jetty or Tomcat builder. However, I think that Geronimo can 
host two web module deployers, but the web servers (Jetty and Tomcat) 
will have to listen on two different ports. It should  really work, 
shouldn't it? Let me try it out....

(after a while)

No, no, it won't probably work. It is because while deploying a module, 
it's serialized with information what container will deploy it (the 
module has a reference to the given-at-deployment JMX query string), so 
either it will be overwritten (the later wins) or at deployment the 
later won't be invoked at all.

I will definitely have to take a look at the code.
