I agree.  We are thinking of changing the default plan name to 
geronimo-web.xml since we hope that jetty and tomcat can use exactly 
the same plan.

At the moment, I don't see how to usefully use xdoclet to construct a 
geronimo web plan, since all the information in the plan is at the web 
application level rather than the servlet level, which the class level 
tags would correspond to.  Since none of the information is specific to 
a particular servlet, I don't think any information should be provided 
by a particular class.  Am I missing something?  Constructing the 
standard web.xml deployment descriptor could be useful, but this does 
not rely on anything having to do with geronimo.

many thanks,
