My thinking ( for 4.1/3.3 ) was to have j-t-c built as a
'standalone module', a trusted/priviledged webapp that can be deployed and
is self-contained.

Keeping all container adapters in j-t-c has the extra benefit that we can
share more code among them. And the build changes I'm trying to make
should simplify building for all or just individual containers.

For the current release - I don't think we should move the code.
For jk2 - I also think we should wait until it's in a more concrete shape.
