To start with, I am totally cool with the solution above, but I would  
like to point out this is exactly what we do for ejb and rar  
modules.  In those cases, we don't generate a module for the beans  
and just put the 77 services into the ear module.  When they are  
standalone we generate a standalone module.

Aaron pointed out the inconstancy between the handling of web and ejb  
modules when we were finishing the 1.1 work.  I still think it would  
be best to generate a module for each nested deployment, but I think  
it would be a lot of work.  Before we do this I think we need to  
introduce the concept of shared and private child modules.  Shared  
child modules would add their class path entries to the shared (e.g.,  
ear) class loader, and their services would become part of the shared  
(e.g., ear) service registry.  Private modules would operate like web  
modules do today meaning they have a private class loader and private  
service registry.

Anyway, it would be a lot of work, and I'm not planning on doing it :)
