The console app istn't set up this way, perhaps it should be.

In jetty its easy to specify ip addresses or web addresses, you can  
specify a set of hosts or virtual hosts in the geronimo plan, just as  
strings.  In tomcat AFAIK you have to define Host gbeans and I've  
never figured out how they are supposed to work.

Ports are harder.  In tomcat you have to define a whole new server for  
the new port and specify which server you want each app deployed to.   

.  I'm not entirely sure about how to do this with jetty -- defining  
another server is definitely possible, but there may be a way  
analogous to the host/virtual-host settings to restrict apps to  
particular connectors.  I'm also not sure this would be accessible in  
geronimo.  Maybe we should push a bit for this in jetty7.
