I can't commit to developing this (I'd love to, I have some ideas, but I
don't have the time...), but hopefully it might interest someone and they
can develop it...

When deploying webapps as WAR files, especially generic webapps, it's not
always very practical to request that an administrator manually unpacks the
WAR file, locates the web.xml file, and updates context or servlet

Perhaps the admin/manager webapp could list all context/servlet parameters
for a given webapp, and allow their values to be changed.  This isn't a way
to modify web.xml directly, more a way to store values to override
whatever's in web.xml.  That way, if a new copy of the webapp is installed
in the server, the overriding values would still be retained and can
override the updated web.xml, without requiring to be reentered.

It's by no means a critical feature, but it's nice to have.
