My idea was to implement the Struts RP chain as interceptors.  I 
haven't gotten too far on this, but that's the motivation behind my 
interest in factoring out the Struts initialization from 
ActionServlet into a ServletContextListener.

I haven't gotten very far on this, but if a few of us are thinking 
about variations on this, now's the time for level-setting.

I haven't yet had a chance to look at this myself.
