What approach are you taking to get this done?   I was thinking to do  
App-managed EntityManagers, the EntityManagerFactories looked up  
through JNDI, and available to both web apps and ejbs.

You make a note about working on an OpenJPA provider, which makes me  
wonder.  The way a JPA provider is plugged in is standard, so you  
shouldn't need to write support for a particular provider.  Any  
details on why that would be required in the code you're working on?

Regardless, I'm glad I'm not the only one working on this :)
