I've been thinking about tomcat a bit, even though I know nothing 
whatsoever about what's inside:-)

The jetty builder really doesn't do anything jetty specific any more 
(except construct one set of redundant security info, that Alan and I 
are hoping to figure out a way to remove).  So, it might be possible to 
reuse the jetty builder for tomcat.  To do this we would need, for 

gbean for web application (JettyWebAppJACCContext)
gbean for servlet (JettyServletHolder)
gbean for filter (JettyFilterHolder)
gbean for filter mapping (JettyFilterMapping)

(I've put the jetty oriented gbean classes in for reference).

If the tomcat versions of these gbeans had the same attributes and 
references as the jetty ones, the only difference would be the classes 
to get the GBeanData objects from.  This is easy to parameterize.
