I guess what  I'll do is to try to make it really easy to switch  
between spec versions in the trunk build.

For connector this will entail:

- moving some versions into the connector plugin root pom
- copying the connector plugin to a connector1_6 plugin
- using some maven properties to select which plugin and component and  
spec gets used
- dealing with dependencies.xml changes via a patch (or updating c-m-p  
to allow property substitution in the dependencies.xml files)

Hopefully this won't be too inconvenient for new work or old work.

IIUC Jetty is actively considering accepting something like my jaspi- 
enabled version into jetty trunk: if and when this happens I can  try  
to do something similar to the above proposal for connector for the  
jetty7 integration now in my sandbox.

Many thanks
