When I wrote the email, I wasn't implying that whatsoever, but I can see
quite clearly now how it could be taken.  Apologies for that implication...

Ok, let me get this straight now.  You're saying, "i want to point a web app
to a location to load jars and classes from."  That already exists.  You put
the jars in the WEB-INF/classes and lib directory.

Then the next thing is, "i want them to be visible to more than one web
app."  That already exists too.  You put them in $CATALINE_HOME/common/lib
and classes.

What do you want that Tomcat isn't already giving you? =)
