Thanks for the explanation David.  I didn't realize this only included 
the APIs.

One more question.  Why is it better to create this as its own 
configuration (and for my purposes it's own plugin) rather than just a 
jar that is included with the Jetty (and Tomcat?) configuration as a 

I might be coming at this from the wrong angle, but I'm thinking that as 
we expose plugins as building blocks for assemblies (where many plugins 
are basically configs from our build) then some of these items might be 
too granular and confuse our users.  I could see a user thinking that 
they didn't need (or want) clustering and then wondering why it is 
pulled into their image anyway.
