True enough, and it's in those implementation details that we as developers make our decisions
what to use.  If we just considered the broad strokes of the architectures as you put it,
and we found them to be fairly similar, there wouldn't be much of a decision to make, they'd
look more or less the same.

Thanks for that reference, I'm going to have a look at that book.  I'm not as up on JSF as
I want to be at this point (haven't really had the time or incentive just yet), but this might
be a good push in that direction.
