Any kind of changes at all are welcome.  Some docs really need to be gutted.

A note to the user list is nice, but really, feel free to dig in and tear it up :)

Probably we can go even further with this doc.  *Most* of the information on that page is
outdated since the 1.0.0 release.  We used to have issues with the Tomcat Eclipse plugin,
but all that was fixed in 1.0.0.  

So Method 1 should really be to just use TomEE as you would Tomcat -- no special options,
no special warnings.  As well method 1 should probably have a link to this doc

Then we probably want to gut/remove all the misleading information that says certain problems
will occur unless specific options are selected.

The formatting of that page is also wrong -- we should just use lists for lists, not formatting
them as code blocks.

If you want to dig in and contribute to that page, very excellent!  Just hit the blue pencil
icon in the upper right and start the overhaul :)
