You can get a proxy implementing axis[GBean].  While calls do go 
through some CGLib machinery, they go through just as much with 
proposal (2).  (1) can be implemented without writing a special 
builder, just generating web.xml.

we won't be deploying a normal servlet, but a "servlet" with a 
non-default constructor.  This would depend on quite a few details of 
the jetty-geronimo integration.
