In that case then I would assume that this isn't a configuration option 
then but rather part of the install processing.  This way there would 
not be a case where the user could accidentally deploy apps before 
choosing or changing the web container.

Assuming that the container selection is part of the installation then 
it should also address my last concern about "pre-deployed" 
applications.  I suppose we would just make the deployment of these 
applications part of the installation instead of part of the build.
