I'm still not sure if I completely understand the approach for "easy 
switching from Jetty->Tomcat".
- If applications have already been deployed to say Jetty before the 
switch is made, then are they functional in Tomcat?
- If not, can the same application be deployed in Tomcat such that it 
doesn't affect the Jetty application if the switch is reversed at some 
time in the future?
- Finally, how are applications that must be "pre-deployed" in each 
container managed (for example example the web console)?
