Another technique would be to append your jar to the Class-Path in  
meta-inf/ in server.jar. Both of these are pretty much hacks.

A cleaner solution would be to build the server from source and add  
your dependency to the Tomcat module. Or simply tinker with the  
Tomcat plan and redeploy the module on your server...

IMO, we need a technique for inserting user-specified jars into a  
module's CLASSPATH. I'm not feeling like we have a satisfactory  
solution, from a user's perspective. Using XML to configure modules  
might help...
