Ok, your use case looks legitimate :-(

I'm -1 for fixing this in 4.0.x (it's just too risky). Fixing it in HEAD is
non trivial (you have to change the work dir, change the JNDI URLs), but
since there are no pending releases, I think it can be done. Using the
engine name or the service name seems reasonable. Which one do you think is
best ? Do you volunteer to do the changes ?
