It means that I can't deploy a module to both containers and run only 
one, doesn't it? If so, a user has to decide ahead if (s)he wants to run 
tomcat or jetty, before deployment takes place, right? I've noticed that 
the order of deployer entries in the j2ee-deployer plan does matter, 
i.e. when there're two web deployers defined in the plan, the later 
wins. Is it always true? Do you know about a solution to not force a 
user to comment or uncomment a gbean configuration for a web builder?
