Subject Re: [core] Introducing implee6 - MYFACES-2579

If it works on Jetty and Tomcat, I'd say +1 on committing the module.

I can't think of big issues with committing it as a separate module. And we
can always revert if we have to.

Cool, can't wait to check it out! On what appserver are you testing this
stuff Jakob?
