Exactly: the only reason you'd need more than one would be when someone 
tries to get fancy and use common/lib.  MHO is that not only is it more 
trouble than it's worth - using common/lib for a webapp library is also 
something we should discourage.  Providing documented "non-support" is 
definitely a form of discouragement :)

I'll go ahead and refactor to support only one TilesApplicationContext 
and then move forward with the configurabality feature.
