I just spoke with Greg on IRC and it appears that the jetty decision is 
a long term decision to use glassfish over jasper.  They had concerns 
with the response (or lack there-of) from the jasper folks and were 
encouraged by the responses that they were getting from glassfish.  He 
didn't think there would be any issues with using jasper with jetty if 
we choose to go that route.
