Sorry but nope.

I'm neutral on the question of one top level GBean giving access to 
all Wadi config, or having many GBeans each wrapping a WADI POJO.   Both should
be easy and the most appropriate one used (if wrapping is difficult, then this
is a flaw of GBeans).

If we have to come up with another mechanism for EJBs, then why not use it
for HttpSessions as well?   1 mechanism is better than 2!

What is the reason you want to keep wadi-web.xml when using wadi in Geronimo?
