Yes.  If someone uses them outside of Geronimo, this causes a problem. 
i.e. If someone writes their own embedded Tomcat in some other product, 
they will have this as an issue.  The "fix" for this is to include a 
Tomcat context.xml with the wars that sets up the proper context-root.

Now...we do have a solution.

We can place their jars in our repo, so we own those versions (i.e. 
servlet-examples-geroniomo-1.0.war) and then they clearly won't affect 
other Tomcat users.

Or...just add the source to our repo and roll our own.  These are just 
examples, so I don't see any problem with this.
