I'd really appreciate it if you would open a jira and keep your  
progress posted as patches to it.

I'm not sure I have the whole context here, but basically you should  
use the web container specific plan namespaces to point out which  
container you want to target.  This is what we do in the configs, so  
there is a daytrader-jetty,  a daytrader-tomcat, etc etc etc.  If  
this doesn't answer your question right away please explain further :-)
