I also seem to recall some issue with using lib/endorsed in 1.1.  But  
if it works then it's definitely the easiest solution.   A similar  
issue has come up before in the context of replacing Tomcat classes  
and this type of approach didn't work well [1].   But that  
circumstance was a little different since Carver needs to add classes  
to Tomcat's classloader, not replace them.

I think it would be great to have some way to edit a component's  
environment without having to redeploy it.   Redeploying a component  
can be difficult because the original plan is not kept after  
deployment.   In Geronimo 2.1 (not released yet) the deployment plans  
for Geronimo's native components like Tomcat are available in the  
repository which would have made this particular task easier.

Best wishes,
